NGO re­turns to The Game Fair – mem­bers get dis­counted tick­ets

Sporting Shooter - - News -

The Na­tional Game­keep­ers’ Or­gan­i­sa­tion (NGO) has an­nounced its re­turn to The Game Fair 2017 (held at Hat­field House, Hert­ford­shire from Fri­day 28 to Sun­day 30 July), fol­low­ing a two-year ab­sence from the event.

NGO mem­bers will be en­ti­tled to a spe­cial rate of £20 (in­stead of the usual £22.50 or the £27 charged on the gate) when they buy ad­vance tick­ets to the event.

The new NGO pav­il­ion will be cen­trally lo­cated on Game­keep­ers’ Row sur­rounded by game­keep­ing-re­lated ex­hibitors. It will act as a hub for the game­keep­ing com­mu­nity with free re­fresh­ments be­ing of­fered, and the NGO team will be in situ to an­swer any queries and to show­case the new al­ter­na­tives to Fenn traps, be­fore a ban comes into ef­fect. The NGO’s de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Tim We­ston com­mented: “The main rea­son the NGO is re­turn­ing is be­cause The Game Fair is not the same old tired event – it is a com­pletely dif­fer­ent show. Af­ter meet­ing with The Game Fair team sev­eral times I was im­pressed by their en­ergy and cre­ativ­ity. They are full of in­no­va­tion and new ideas. We are gen­uinely look­ing for­ward to ex­hibit­ing at this year’s show.”

The Game Fair’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor James Gower added: “We are de­lighted to wel­come the re­turn of the NGO af­ter a two-year ab­sence. They play a cen­tral role in bring­ing to­gether game­keep­ers from all over the coun­try – in par­tic­u­lar con­nect­ing am­a­teur keep­ers with pro­fes­sion­als for ad­vice.”
