Midsummer – the joys and the challenges

Well, we have had the longest day and are in for a scorcher of a week – welcome news for wildlife and consequential insect life where water is abundant and the showers over the past week or two have certainly helped.

Stag Training

The Stag Training Course has been designed by Ex-Marines to tackle those difficult issues for example:  leadership, communication, coping mechanisms and health and well being.  By being open and honest many situations can be resolved and individual problems alleviated.  Everyone has issues from time to time which can cause stress and anxiety – a difficult shooting season, family problems, illness or a myriad of other difficulties which can build up if action is not taken.

This course is interactive, interesting and thought provoking.

One half day (3 hours) in three sections with lunch/supper in a number of locations around the country.  If you are interested or wish to book a course as an individual or as an estate team contact us on 01677 470180 enquiries@thegamekeeperswelfaretrust or complete the form below.
