Labour Peer Baroness Golding has been appointed Chairman of the Countryside Alliance’s Campaign for Angling.


Baroness Golding, who takes over as Chairman of the Campaign from Bob James, is a keen angler and supporter of all fishing sports. She is on the Council of the Atlantic Salmon Trust, is Chairman of Second Chance (a young people’s charity that offers angling as an alternative to crime and difficult circumstances) and also takes part in the Annual Lords and Commons fishing event.


Baroness Golding comments on her appointment, “I am delighted to be joining this thriving campaign at such an important time and am keen to advance the Campaign for Angling as the definitive independent voice of the sport.


“I am passionate about angling and I look forward to heading up the Campaign at a time when there are so many projects on the go. My Director, Charles Jardine, and I will be working together to promote and safeguard the future of angling”.
