New NMTF President
meets Archbishop
of York
THE NMTF’s new National President John Dyson was on his stall at Pocklington in North Yorkshire when a stranger walked up to him and shook hands.

The archbishop was visiting the market town as part of his six-month pilgrimage around the
NMTF fishing competition 2016
ARE YOU a keen fisherman or woman? Then why not get involved in the NMTF fishing competition?
The annual event, which is taking place on Monday 27th June, will once again be held at Barston Lakes in Solihull.
Organised by the Stratford-upon-Avon and Coventry NMTF branches, the competition aims to raise money for the Benevolent Fund, a charity
set up to help market traders who fall on hard times due to illness or some other misfortune.
The competition costs £25 to enter, which includes peg fee and 2 course evening meal. Draw will be made at 9.00 am with fishing from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm.
For more information please contact Mike Riley on 07745 795850 or email
