Picture of the month
Game shooting would be nothing without the new blood coming into the sport each year, so it felt only right to give our picture of the month award to Connah baker, who was recently awarded the ngo’s Frank Jenkins memorial Trophy “in recognition of his passion, determination and considerable abilities” during his time as a gamekeeping student at reaseheath College in Cheshire. Connah, 18, was a top student on his Level 3 extended Diploma in Land and Wildlife management course at reaseheath and hopes one day to become a headkeeper on a grouse moor.
He was presented with his trophy at the midland Game Fair by ngo chairman Liam bell. “Connah is a remarkably mature lad, whose love for the job shone through. The references from his college and work placements were first class and the judges, who had to sort through a particularly strong list of nominees, picked him as a clear winner,” said mr bell.
Good luck with your future career, Connah, and a bottle of champagne is on its way to help you toast to your success.
