11th December 2019

ON election day and approaching a time of giving perhaps it is time to take stock and consider how fortunate we are, even in these testing times.  The resilience of gamekeepers in the face of multiple challenges is amazing, just getting about this autumn has been difficult enough.  To hear and see the sheer ignorance […]

Hatfield House – The Game Fair 2019

We are setting off to the Game Fair in almost record heat but in typical “can do” attitude for everyone attending. Those of us who live and work in the countryside are used to working with nature, the weather and plan accordingly. There is a huge amount of work involved in just a few days […]

2018 Review

2018 began with sadness and tragedy, and we remember those we have lost within the Gamekeeping Community. We have risen to the challenge, coming together in “Raising the Game” to address mental health problems and make a difference. As part of this initiative we began “Stag Training”, which continues around the country in 2019, with […]

“Raising The Game”

Date posted: July 18, 2018

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.

Christmas Message

Christmas night is a time of reflection after a hectic day of family celebrations or perhaps a solitary day or perhaps a working day – there are certainly always jobs to do whether feeding round, seeing to the dogs or indoors with a lunch to prepare. For the Gamekeepers’ Welfare Trust it is a time […]

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 […]

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 […]
