We’are really pleased that Green Quay is supporting our pledge campaign and hope that as many people as possible will either make a pledge at the Pledge Tree or go on-line to make one. Society often needs a peg on which to hang their hopes for a better life.
The Pledge Tree at The Green Quay means that people who are serious about changing their quality of life for a better one can commit themselves to little things that together make a big difference. Earlier this year a 13-year-old boy had a lucky escape when a fishing rod he was carrying came into contact with an overhead cable. He suffered nothing worse than severe burns to his hand and foot.
The Environment Agency has been running a campaign to manage this risk wherever power lines are close to Agency-owned public fishing areas. This applies to the river bank stretching for about a mile in either direction from the bridges at Potter Heigham.
