It was a great pleasure to be present at The Borders College on 19th April to meet with Scottish Sporting organisations and discuss how we can work together to improve our services and become a greater force for good. There were lots of ideas and great enthusiasm in the room to make a difference so […]
Traditionally our new season in February marks a new start but a New Year does give us pause to reflect on our own lives and how we wish to live and work in the 21st Century whatever stage of life we find ourselves. There have been some excellent stories of making a difference to individual […]

We are very much looking forward to The Game Fair where we have our stand on row K1113 (Gunmakers Row) – do call and see us.
The work undertaken over recent months through our collective initiative is gaining ground and momentum. With a number of organisations/companies including information on their websites or newsletters and offers of support through the mentoring scheme as well we are delighted with the response thus far.Raising the Game 1
Our main launch is to be held on Saturday 28th July on our stand at 11.45 am. Do come along if you are nearby and hear what we are doing and how we are “Raising The Game” along with our partners; BASC, CA, CLA, GWCT, MA, NGO, SGA, SACS & SLE.
We are focussed on our Training Course which will run during the autumn onwards and bring a new perspective on individual’s professional journey, communication, health and well being . This course has been built by Ex-Marines who have close links to Gamekeepers in terms of a male dominated profession, pride and dedication to the job. We are sure that this course will help everyone to understand their own career path, how they communicate within their teams and help them look after themnselves and each other. This course has the potential and ability through the issues covered to enhance performance, efficiency and the effectiveness of shoots and estates.
Booking will be available soon and venues around the country will be within reasonable distances of anyone who wishes to take part. Information will be available on all our websites but booking through GWT.
We hope you will join us on this journey.
As I write this note the trees are turning and the swallows on their way South with partridge in every hedgerow and pheasants awandering! Grouse days have been fruitful and frustrating for nearby moors, with fog and muggy weather on some days and cool conditions on others. Par for the course, but always good to […]
We are now reflecting on our first conference in a series of five throughout the country with delight, pride and true gratitude to those who came along to speak on the day, support us through sponsorship and practical help and delegates who joined us. Lord Aylesford as our Chairman hosted the event with typical generosity, […]
This year marks 25 years of the existence of the Gamekeepers’ Welfare Trust and there are Trustees who were at the beginning of this journey which supports more people in different ways around the country. Our Chairman The Earl of Aylesford along with Mike Swan and Ian Grindy representing GWCT and BASC respectively were founder […]
A very Happy Christmas to everyone
May was a busy month with the Countryside Clay Shoot at Six Mile Bottom, and we are indebted to BASC, Richard Clarke and his team as well as all the competitors for making this a date to hold in the annual calendar. Bringing organisations together in a common aim and supporting good causes is […]
It is truly remarkable that most of us cannot remember another monarch whilst we have lived and most of all are in awe at Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s immense energy and stamina which outstrips most of us at the best of times. Duty, honour and trust are words which spring to mind and I hope that in […]
It is nigh on the end of the Pheasant season and I can almost hear the sigh of relief! The last few weeks are often hectic and to begin a new season of vermin control, tidying up and catching up is beckoning along with I hope, for many a well earned holiday! For the grouse […]
