In 2016 the Club will again run its 3 day Festival in July. The 2015 Festival kicked off on Sunday 19th July with our excellent charity Duck Race. This year saw 673 ducks take to the waters at Shipston Bridge in four races and with a record number of spectators. Our thanks go to everyone who sponsored a duck and everyone who came along to cheer on their duck. After handing out the winnings over £500 was shared equally between Shipston Home Nursing and junior angling in the Shipston area.
Our 2015 Festival Weekend took place from Friday 24th July and Sunday 26th July and was hugely successful on all fronts, senior competitive angling, junior coaching and evenings of frolics with great bands every night at Shipston Sports Club.
If you would like to contact the Festival organisers, then please email them at email@example.com or visit the Fish n Frolics website www.fishnfrolics.com/ where plans for 2016 will become available.
More recently, December 2015 saw Stour Valley Lions again declare their wholehearted support for junior angling in Shipston with a generous donation. The Lions' 2014 donation was used, along with a grant of the same size from the Club, to train our coaches - Rob and Stuart, up to Level 1. The 2015 donation, which will again be matched by the Club, will be used to increase Rob and Stuart's coaching certification to Level 2.
