The National Water Keepers Association has been formed by Adrian Lane (CEO) & Paul Marsh (MD), it was officially launched on 17th August 2020.
It was thought unfair by Adrian Lane (CEO) & Paul Marsh (Managing Director), who are both volunteers that there was no organisation out there to protect the interests of and stand up for the rights of Water Keepers in England, so the National Water Keepers Association was born. Both have great skills to bring to the table, Adrian is a very experienced Water Keeper with years of experience behind him, including he was the Area Coordinator for Gloucestershire for the Angling Trust Voluntary Bailiff Service (VBS) and he has studied fishery law for quite a few years now.
Paul Marsh (Managing Director) is a experienced Water Keeper and is also a retired police officer with 35 years of service with West Midlands Police, He is a founder member along with Adrian of Fishery Watch and he puts in an incredible amount of work into the services that we both provide via the UK Angling & Conservation Group. Both Paul and Adrian work very closely on all four companies that they run as not for profit organisation, the only people that need to benefit from what we do, we believe are our members.
The companies in the group of which the National Water Keepers Association are part of are as listed below.
- UK Angling & Conservation Group Ltd (Parent Company) incorporated 7th April 2020.
- Fishery Watch Ltd (Subsiduary Company) incorporated 10th January 2020.
- AC Intel (Subsiduary Company) launched 10th August 2020.
- National Water Keepers Association (Subsiduary Company) launched 18th August 2020.
We have all the services that a Water Keeper could need, it is coming together in order to complete the formation of the association, in a way that can fully support and protect Water Keepers all over England, we are not interested in your money, our membership packages start from FREE, nobody else is able to offer the guardians of our waterways & fisheries this level of service for FREE.
Please consider becoming a member, for what it costs, we believe that no Water Keeper/Club/Fishery Bailiff should be without the backing of this tailored association that will do anything it can to support you in the vital role that you play in protecting angling for future generations.
