As I write this note the trees are turning and the swallows on their way South with partridge in every hedgerow and pheasants awandering!

We are very grateful to Holts Auctioneers, sponsors and supporters.
Rather belatedly I am reporting on our second event at Swinton Park on 28th March by kind permission of Lord Masham. The weather was beautiful, venue perfect, speakers superb, food glorious and most of all delegates including gamekeepers, partners,estate owners, land agents in large numbers of almost 100 enjoyed their company. MC Christopher Bourne-Arton understands completely the importance of a good working relationship between keeper and employer and being a “friend of GWT” was well placed to speak on our behalf. Thank you to all involved.
We are grateful to all our sponsors and most particularly to Hull Cartridge Company and Marsdens Game Feeds without which these events could not be held.

Thank you all! […]
