THE Cheshire branch of the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) will be holding its annual lunch in March.

The lunch and auction will be held at Colshaw Hall Country Estate in Over Peover on Sunday, March 3.

Sponsored this year by Savills, the event is well-established and popular in the county.

The money raised will go towards the GWCT’s ground-breaking research into wildlife management and the future of our countryside.

Pippa Hackett, the GWCT regional organiser for the North West, said: “We are very pleased to be holding this very popular lunch in March 2019 at Colshaw Hall.

“It is always a hugely enjoyable event and a great opportunity for us to get together to show our support and passion for the countryside.”

The GWCT uses science to promote game and wildlife management as an essential part of nature conservation.

They develop scientifically researched game and wildlife management techniques.

They promote the research work to conservationists, including farmers and landowners, and offer an on-site advisory service on all aspects of game and wildlife management, so that Britain’s countryside and its wildlife are enhanced for the public benefit.

The GWCT influence government policy with sound science that creates progressive and effective policies.

They also support best practice for field sports that contribute to improving the biodiversity of the countryside.

The ticket price is £60 per head or £600 for a table.
