Royal Visit

Prince Charles Visiting The Ure.

It was a great honour that His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales visited us on the 10th of September. Our solar powered livestock drinkers were what initially caught the Prince's eye. He visited a new installation on the banks of the Ure before moving on to a reception at Berry's Farm Shop Swinnithwaite. He showed a great interest in our work and was particularly interested to hear about the very large multi sea-winter fish that frequent the river. Not many people realise that the Ure was the river that produced the two largest salmon caught in England and Wales during 2012. Its relatively common to hear of anglers having long battles with huge fish. Ure Salmon Trust relies soley on sponsorship from local companies which includes T&R Theakston Ltd, Biker Group and membership subscriptions. I would urge you to support us by becoming a member at www.uresalmon.org.uk/member. We are working very hard to ensure the Ure will very soon be a major salmon river once again.
