September 17

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 […]

Swinton Park Gamekeeping for Life Conference 28 March

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.
