One week on and we have pulled together our highlights from this years GWCT Scottish Game Fair!
“We were delighted to be able to return to the Scottish Game Fair after what has been a long 18 months with the current Covid19 pandemic and what had seemed to be a never ending lockdown. It was great to see everyone be able to get together and celebrate the industry!
Our main aim is education and it was a pleasure to host so many keen youngsters on our stand this year. It was particularly refreshing to see them want to learn more about where their food comes from, get hands on plucking partridge and then taste a selection of delicious healthy and sustainable game meats!
We were also pleased to be asked to perform our demonstration, which brought the ‘Moorland to the Mainring’. To see so many keen children want to get involved was excellent. It gave everyone a view of a typical year on the moor, see the general practices that are carried out by our hard working rural workers on our country’s Grouse Moors and the benefits they have not only to the wildlife which thrive on our management moorlands but also the benefits to our local rural businesses and communities.
I would personally like to thank the SRMG teams who worked hard over the weekend and helped to make it a success, from the estates who provided the equipment and game, to those who helped set up and worked on the stand but also to all who pulled together for the demo! A massive thank you to Joe from Game Changer BBQ for joining us on the stand and to Kirk Norbury Photographer for capturing the weekend for us! “

Luckily you don’t have to wait a full year …… The GWCT Scottish Game Fair will return to its usual slot in the calendar next year! See you from the 1st - 3rd of July 2022!
