The Game Fair are delighted to announce the presentation of The Game Fair Long Service Awards at the festival of the countryside this summer from 29-31 July at Ragley Hall, Warwickshire.
The Game Fair Long Service Award is open to full-time gamekeepers, stalkers and ghillies in England who each have 40 or more years of continuous employment in their respective field. A further separate award is presented to those that have 50 or more years’ service under their belt. Recipients of the awards will be presented with a unique medal accompanied by a framed certificate.
Long service awards are a regular and long-standing feature of The Game Fair and provide an annual
opportunity to recognise the sort of dedication a relatively small band of people have given to the
James Gower Managing Director at The Game Fair commented:
“It is only fitting that The Game Fair Long Service Awards take place at The Game Fair, the event is the most prestigious and recognised globally, a perfect setting to honour the work of gamekeepers, ghillies and stalkers. It is with great pleasure we will be able to recognise the commitment and dedication of so many wonderful men and women who work tirelessly for the good of conservation and the countryside.”
To further promote the future of gamekeeping and countryside management The Game Fair are delighted to launch the inaugural Young Gamekeeper of the Year Award in England, the presentation of which will take place alongside The Game Fair Long Service Awards in a prestigious ceremony in the Main Arena.
The Scottish Gamekeepers Association will continue to run the Scottish Gamekeepers Long Service Awards, the presentation of which will take place at The GWCT Scottish Game Fair, 1-3 July at Scone Palace.
