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 […]

Housing

For the gamekeeper being made redundant, retiring, or simply losing their job due to circumstance, housing is usually the most important concern.

Please complete the following questionnaire which will give a clearer picture of the situation for 2015, drawn up by Harrison Riddle (keepers son) as part of his dissertation at Harper Adams University. We would like to support this important study.

It can be filled in online at:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1MkYoaXLB78NX4FJ3-kNdrvY8uLWAsZYI4QiQzcl4kYM/viewform

Or alternatively you can request a copy to fill in via email by contacting Harrison directly at harrisonriddle@hotmail.co.uk

Everyone should try and make provision in later life or in an emergency or unforeseen circumstance but this is not always possible and we are there to try and plug the gap.

For those who are retiring we help all we can, liaising with local authorities, helping with top up rents and deposits and friendly support along the way.

In redundancy, every assistance will be made to provide help with temporary housing, either private rentals or whatever is suitable, deposits, top up rents where eligible. We are there to help you.

Contact us for further information on: 01677 470180 email: gamekeeperwtrust@btinternet.com

Every call is confidential.
