Jo Gray out roving on Petersfield Heath for news met up with Richard Welch. He’s a volunteer fishing bailiff for Petersfield Town Council & passionate about looking after the wellbeing of the lake for both the wildlife, fisher folk & visitors.

Richard tells us about the ongoing operation against ‘blue-green algae’ & what you can do to help.
