Despite coronavirus restricting GWCT Advisory staff from visiting clients at a critical time of year for planning and undertaking work on farms and shoots, we offer a range of remote assistance services.
While shoot management is easiest to review in person on site, these are extraordinary times, and we believe a great deal of help and practical advice can be offered either over the phone or even via video calling someone out on the ground using smartphones. Whether you would like upland or lowland advice in any of the four corners of the UK, we have an advisor who can help.
