On 4 October 2008 Vitalise Churchtown ran a fun and fishing day at Rashleigh Lakes in Luxulyan. The family event, supported by Roche Angling Club, gave visitors the chance to participate in taster sessions with fishing coaches provided by the Club.
For non-anglers, there were games, a raffle and a treasure hunt on the day.
In 2007 members of Roche Angling Club, with huge support from both Restormel Borough Council and the Environment Agency, began a regeneration project transforming the lakes in to an accessible venue to enable wheelchair users to enjoy the sport. On the day people of all abilities benefited from taster sessions.
