Gipping Valley Angling Club (GVAC)

GVAC welcomes the affiliation of the Suffolk Disabled Anglers Forum (SDAF). Its members now enjoy fishing at our accessible sites. We now have eight professional NVQ level 2 angling coaches, we are the first club in the country to have so many enrol onto and then pass this qualification. We can also boast at having the first and only female angling coach in Suffolk, she is also one of only two in the country. We had to gain this qualification to allow us to legally continue coaching, obviously this course covered working with children and vulnerable adults.
We have built a new 2 Lake fishery with funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the Environment Agency. This fishery is the first in Suffolk to offer total access to disabled anglers and can accommodate 50.
