Countryside Alliance Award
Rural Enterprise Winners for Wales 2009

"for having the foresight to see the need to stock the rivers of South West Wales, with young Salmon and Sea Trout"

Viv Bradshaw and Olwen Hardwick from the hatchery were the winners of the prestigious "Countryside Alliance Rural Enterprise Award" for Wales, back in January. They were nominated by our own treasurer Clive Davies who is also Secretary of the Carmarthen Fishermans Federation.

Due to the severe weather conditions that visited us last January, Viv and Olwen were unable to attend the Awards presentation in the Sennedd.

Elin took time out from her busy schedule to spend several hours at the hatchery. She was shown first hand the conservation work being undertaken. She also discussed, in detail, River Towy angling issues with Clive and Steve Bowley, Chairman of the CFF.

Rachel Evans, Countryside Alliance Director for Wales joined the group for informal discussions during the afternoon.
