Fish Fest lands award

Following on from the successful Fish Fest programme pilot in September/October 2023, Cast A Thought, and our partners - Maidstone Community Safety Unit (Kent Police); Infozone Youth Centre; Golding Homes and Angling Direct - were invited to the Kent Police College, Maidstone on Thursday 22nd February to attend the Strategic Prevention Command's Problem Solving Awards 2024. This evening was a recognition of the work taking place around the county to deal with anti-social behaviour. Having received the Chief Officer Certificate of Merit, from ACC Tracey Harman, Local Policing Command, for identifying and delivering a successful intervention to divert young people away from anti-social behaviour, the team were honoured to win the overall Problem Solving Award.

Fish Fest will continue in 2024, thanks to funding from Golding Homes, working not only with the initial group but with new groups across the Maidstone area.

Following the success of the programme there has already been interest in rolling out this format in Hythe and Hertfordshire.
