There is a magic in fishing which holds a mystery that is hard to explain until you see its effect on people. Vulnerable and disadvantaged children from various parts of East Kent are uplifted after a day’s fishing with the East Kent Branch of the Masonic Fishing Charity. Adults with learning difficulties, and those who need support and recreation after a serious illness, also benefit from the experience. It is for these reasons that the charity’s volunteers spend time at the lakes to inspire their guests to fish.

Another successful days fishing was held on the 21st September 2017, at Longshaw Farm Fishery. The guests on this occasion were adults from the Fifth Trust Charity near Canterbury that provides a safe and fulfilling way of life for adults with learning difficulties. They were accompanied by a patient from the Stroke Association in Margate.
