Malleny Anglers have helped to jointly fund works to improve the narrow bridge at the east of the fishery. Balerno Ramblers approached Malleny Angling last year to seek assistant funding these important works. Along with MAA, other organisations and some private individual donors the work was funded and completed earlier this year. The bridge was very narrow before with a steep unguarded drop into the burn on one side. The improvements have more than doubled the width of the crossing and added a railing.
Many of the volunteer bailiffs donated their fuel mileage allowance (paid to bailiffs to ensure they are not left out of pocket when traveling to the fishery). The funds were offered to several local charitable organisations including the Friends of the Pentlands.
Malleny Angling are keen to support local organisations to improve facilities and opportunities in and around the fishery for all.
