Brian Morgan was 73 when his life was completely changed by a local fishing group.

“I actually get to talk to people,” added Brian. “It is doing me a world of good. It’s not even the fishing really. It’s the guys.”

Loneliness, physical health, mental wellbeing and isolation are some of the reasons why people have signed up.

It wasn’t until the pandemic lockdown in 2020 that he decided he needed to make some changes.

James Powderhill, one of the volunteers who attends the sessions, said the group has been there for him as much as he is for them.
