On the 5th & 6th May 2012, a two day event was hosted by Richard & Richard (P.O.), owners of the farm, who allowed the regular caravanners to enter into a fishing competition. Each Angler had to be sponsored for approximately £100! The Angler who raised the most sponsorship received a carved Carp fish that was donated by John Moss of Moss Art, near Ledbury. Over the two days, the Anglers were treated to a cooked breakfast and lunch by the House Pool along with a few cheeky drinks! Evening entertainment was organised by P.O. and all the lady caravanners brought along a food platter to share on the Saturday evening whilst being entertained by a live band. The two day fishing competition was competitive amongst the Anglers. Saturday Pole results: 1st Place - Dave Tyler - 63lbs, 2nd Place - Wayne Panting - 57lbs & 11oz and 3rd Place - Dwane Evans - 40lbs & 12oz. Sunday Rod results: 1st Place - Graham Astill - 92lbs & 11oz, 2nd Place - C.J. - 60lbs & 4oz and 3rd Place - Tony Hawkings - 43lbs & 6oz. The heaviest weight was won by Graham Astill of 92lbs & 11oz. The Angler to win the carved carp fish was Wayne Saunders raising £325!!! The weekend was a huge success achieving a grand total of £4,217.38 for The ELY Memorial Fund.
Me & Steve would like to say a huge "THANK YOU" to every caravanner at Stone End Farm and especially Richard & Richard for their time and effort to making it a wonderful event. To all the said be "Cooks" who served up a tremendous breakfast for us all, you did a fantastic job!! Lastly, special thanks to Wayne Saunders who supplied the Anglers with team "ELY" t-shirts, which was a lovely surprise for me & Steve. Tears of sadness to our Em and tears of joy for a special group of friends that we have met and supported us since our Em past away. Thank you!
