THE purchase of the legendary Yateley complex, Hampshire, is gathering pace.

We reported last week that local businessman Ross McGill was appealing to anglers to help save the carp mecca by purchasing it from CEMEX Angling.

Ross said: ‘We successfully formed the company and issued a prospectus for the sale of shares.

‘I’ve had nothing but enthusiastic support from the angling community and received several formal applications for shares already. We are off to an excellent start.

‘I have meetings with angling groups who are interested in participating, town council and local angling retail outlets.’
