Girls’ Brigade get sampling for Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Avon Angling Association CRIMP team has been joined by members of Stonehouse Girls’ Brigade to undertake riverfly monitoring. Club secretary David Paterson thought it would be an excellent idea to involve members of the Girls’ Brigade, who are working towards their Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award, in their CRIMP sampling programme. Two of the girls took the CRIMP training course back in June and a further five who were keen to get involved (but didn’t attend the course) are working under the supervision of David (although their results won’t be included in the official sampling programme). ¬†The girls have been sampling Nellies Burn which runs into the Cander Water –¬†great work ladies!
