Angling Trust’s enforcement team
welcomes two new faces
Mark Gregory and Bogdan Pascaru.
T h e A n g l i n g Tr u s t ’s F i s h e r i e s
Enforcement Support Service has
welcomed two new members of staff
to its team.
Mark Gregory has been appointed
as the FESS’s Enforcement Communications Manager working closely
with Dilip Sarkar MBE, National
Enforcement Manager, to help promote the team’s partnership work
with the Environment Agency, police
and other bodies.
Mark said: “Having enjoyed a varied career within the police over the
past 30 years both within uniform and
CID and also being heavily involved
in angling and fishery management, I
find myself looking forward to combining experience gleaned from both
roles within my new position as
enforcement communications manager for the Angling Trust.”
Line Recycling and Litter Survey
The ANLRS keeps going from strength to strength, and we now have around 265
shops, 70-plus fisheries, eight charter boats plus angling guides, beachside shops
and even a coastal aquarium! Add to this the great work of the two Irish coordinators, and the UK scheme is looking great. Much of this is thanks to every one of you
included in this email due to your support, and we have now prevented over
THREE MILLION meters being sent to landfill or discarded in the aquatic environment across the UK
Steve and I have just returned from EFTTEX (European Tackle Trade Exhibition)
in Brussels, and we are delighted to say that the response over there has been fantastic and already have shops from three countries signing up within the last few
days. Very exciting and busy times are ahead!
We are running a new survey about line recycling and litter in angling in conjunction with the Angling Trust on Survey Monkey. This will allow us to tailor the
ANLRS scheme depending on the responses and hopefully make more people
aware of the scheme.
Would you have 10-15 minutes available? Please could you complete the survey
and also take time to spread the word about the survey via your publications, contacts and your social media. The link to the survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.
The survey is totally anonymous unless you request further information at the
end of the questions. Hope that you can help get as many responses to the survey
as possible and again thanks for your continued support.

‘Something the whole of angling can agree on.’. n
Dilip Sarkar added: “As both an
experienced police officer who has
long supported us in the North East
and as a lifelong big fish angler, we
are delighted to welcome Mark to our
team. We will be working closely
together on creating and implementing a robust and consistent enforcement message in partnership with the
Environment Agency and police, and
we all look forward very much to
working with Mark and moving
things even further forward.”
Meanwhile, Bogdan ‘George’ Pascaru has joined the FESS as the Building Bridges’ Romanian Officer. Bogdan has been closely involved with
fishing in the UK for the past 12 years
and joined the Angling Trust’s Voluntary Bailiff Service in July 2016,
becoming Area Co-ordinator for Kent
and South London a year later.
Bogdan said: “Joining the VBS was
a way to give something back to the
angling community, and I’m very
much looking forward to my new role
with Building Bridges. It is not all
about catching people doing wrong,
for me the reward comes from educating and helping people do things
right, not just fishing legally but also
looking after our waters and wildlife.”
Janusz Kansik, Building Bridges
Project Manager, added: “Bogdan is a
great motivator and has gained valuable experience with the VBS. I’m
very pleased to welcome him to the
Building Bridges team.”
In other changes, Szymon Skoczen
has switched from Nenescape Project
Officer to joining Building Bridges
team as Project Officer. A replacement for the Nenescape Project Officer role will be announced soon.. n
