North East Region
Welcome to The North East RegionThis new section of the Angling Trust website gives you an overview of how The Angling Trust works in the North East Region.
In the North East we are currently working closely with the Environment Agency who already run successful Angling Forums. We have recently held development meetings in the Tyne, Wear and Tees catchments to involve stakeholders from across the region in our plans to take on the administration of the North East Forums. Meeting notes from these three meetings can be found at the bottom of the page. We have now formed a steering group to guide us through the transition period as the EA hand over control of the Forums to The Angling Trust. The steering group includes representatives from both coarse and game anglers in all three catchments.
The next Forum meeting will take place in the Tyne catchment.

So far we have had an applicant for all posts, however if you would like to put your name forward please contact John Cheyne on the email address below.
If you would like to attend this Open Day event please confirm your attendance in advance by emailing John Cheyne on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Forum currently holds three meetings a year, one in each of the key river catchments, to ensure that anglers from the Tyne, Tees and Wear all get the chance to have a meeting focused on their river. Meeting notes from these meetings along with copies of presentation slides will also be found at the bottom of this page as they become available.
We would like to express our thanks to the Environment Agency Fisheries Team in the NE for all it's help and encouragement and especially to Paul Frear who has played a key role in helping to ensure that the transition from EA run forums to AT forums is a smooth one.
