The lake that im hoping we can bring back to life, has been close to my heart since i first fished it. Back then it was a scene of beauty, so peaceful and tranquil. Dog walkers and the elderly enjoyed it too, especially during the summer months when the lillies were in blossom along with the trees.
Unfortunately over recent years the funds from fishing tickets have gradually diminished, along with voluntary contributions. On top of this fish have been taken/stolen from the lake over the last fee years which has resulted in lack of interest to fish the lake. In turn this has resulted in lack of upkeep to the lake.
I personally have no affiliation to the lake, however this lake has been very close to my heart and feel that if nothing is done about the demise of this lake then we might aswell get a load of dirt and just fill it completely. If you google loch neaton you will see that the history of the lake goes way back before my time. It truelly was a lake that was enjoyed by all ages, and i personally would love nothing more than to raise as much money as possible to aid repairing the walkways, fishing swims, clearing lake of weed, planting various plants and replacing fish stocks
