Anglers given chance for lake say
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to head down to Windermere with their fishing tackle are among those who may be interested in a session where they can voice their opinions on the management of England's largest lake.

The Lake District National Park Authority has revealed there will be a four-hour drop-in session with the Windermere Lake User Forum, to be held at Ferry Nab in Bowness on May 21st, between 10:00 and 14:00 BST.

Catchment projects co-ordinator Rebecca Cathey encouraged anyone with a view about the lake to come down.

"It simply is their special chance to come and let us know their opinions about how the lake can be improved and make us aware of the issues that concern them," she stated.

Issues of water quality have been on the agenda since last year's Great North Swim was cancelled due to an algae infestation.

Another upcoming event will look at issues concerning another lake in the national park.

The authority will be holding a consultation day on May 19th over plans for family-friendly walking routes around the lake, which was enlarged in the late 19th century to provide drinking water for Manchester.
