On 8th September thirteen people from Re-Instate went on a trip with a difference. The Masonic Fishing Society of Kent very kindly donated a day’s 1to1 fly fishing coaching to us. The day included a fishing competition, BBQ, medal ceremony and the chance for everyone to learn a new skill and spend a day relaxing in the countryside. A great well-being activity. And yes, the photo below WAS actually taken in the Re-Instate office!
