Johnshaven Fish Festival Management Group is a gathering of people from the local community who got together in 2007 to oversee the running of the annual Fish Festival.  All profit from the Fish Festival is gifted back into the community to benefit various local organisations and sports groups.  The Committee are all thoroughly delighted to have secured LEADER funding for our event this year as this now means the lower our running costs are, the more funds we have to distribute to help boost the community groups.
