GWCT Cymru hosting three winter events


THE Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) Cymru will be hosting three winter events in North Wales  to promote the scientific research carried out over the past 80 years needed to underpin sustainable conservation practice in the future.

The three events are taking place on the following dates:

  1. Thursday 6 December at Tre-Ysgawen Hall, Llangefni, Anglesey, Ll77 7UR at 6.30pm.
  2. Thursday 13 December at Plas Bodegroes Restaurant, Pwllheli, LL53 5TH. Meeting at Bob Valentines shooting school in Pwllheli, Ll53 7PG at 6.30pm.
  3. Saturday 9 February with Masterchef winners Mark and Claire Lara at The Springs, Stable Yard, Llanrhaeadr, Denbigh, Ll16 4NL at 6.30pm.

GWCT Cymru’s newly-appointed advisor, Matt Goodall, said: “The Welsh countryside has never faced such uncertain times as it does now.

“There are big changes ahead and we have a lot to shout about and demonstrate how the work on the ground delivers a countryside rich in game and other wildlife. We need to remind people of the conservation charity successes over the years to enhance Britain’s countryside in boosting biodiversity. We strongly believe in farmer led solutions to deliver the best outcomes for our countryside.”

Sue Evans, the GWCT Cymru director, commented: “We are working particularly hard to influence government policy especially with the recent shooting ban on NRW land in Wales and we are passionate that field sports - shooting and fishing in particular - demonstrate their substantial contribution to the conservation of landscape habitat and wildlife in Wales.”

Come and listen to the different projects that GWCT is involved with in Wales and helping to shape future environmental policy.

Tickets for the three-course dinners and talks are £55 each, which and includes drinks and canapes on arrival.
