Prestigious award for GWCT's Mike Swan

Last Friday Joe Dimbleby, editor of the Shooting Times, visited GWCT HQ to present our very own Mike Swan with the National Gamekeepers' Organisation Educational Trust’s Bellamy Award.

The award recognises those who display “exceptional creativity and initiative in promoting the gamekeeper's role in sustainable countryside management”.

Mike writes a regular column for the Shooting Times and you can read some of his pieces here.


During Joe's visit he also kindly presented GWCT Chief Executive Teresa Dent with a cheque from the Shooting Times Woodcock Club for £5,000. This generous donation will go towards supporting the GWCT's pioneering woodcock work, including our new study involving resident woodcock.
