The Scottish Gamekeepers Association is delighted to welcome Spratt’s Game Foods as the official sponsor of our 25th Anniversary AGM.
The company has had a strong and long-lasting connection with the SGA.
Everyone is happy that Spratt’s will be continuing on the journey with us, as we celebrate a quarter century of representing gamekeepers, ghillies and deer managers at McDiarmid Park, Perth, on Friday March 4th 2022.
Chairman Alex Hogg, MBE, said: “We are honoured to have Spratt’s as the headline sponsor for the AGM, in such as important year.
“The relationship and backing we have enjoyed with partners over the years has enabled us to go forward with confidence, across the many areas where we represent our members.
“On behalf of the Committee, I thank Spratt’s for this relationship and hope it continues to give value for all involved.”
The sponsorship arrangement comes one week before the AGM, with renowned speaker and funny man, Jim Brown, added to the programme.
Jim regaled members with mirthful anecdotes from rural life when attending a previous AGM at Scone and the SGA is delighted to welcome him back as closing speaker.
A Spokesperson for sponsor, Spratt’s, said: “We are delighted to be the main sponsor for the SGA 25th anniversary AGM.
“Established in London, circa 1860, Spratt’s pioneered the concept of animal life stages with appropriate foods for each stage.
“We today continue over 150 years of heritage and expertise in understanding and producing quality feed for hard working dogs and sporting game to meet their exacting nutritional requirements.”
On the day, there will be talks on the West Coast and Moray Firth salmon tracking projects, the use of copper bullets and night vision equipment and the work by Natural England on the Hen Harrier Brood Management trial.
Stephen Murphy from the project will join us remotely to discuss the work which is increasing the number of breeding birds down south, as well as looking at what the project’s satellite tags are telling them, and what they are not.
With days to go, the SGA office is urging those who wish to attend to confirm NOW.
Remaining spaces are limited and members should book on firstname.lastname@example.org noting their membership number and lunch choice.
Lunch options are Venison Casserole or Fish & Chips.
Registration starts at 9am. There will be a Raffle on the day, with all proceeds going to Gamekeepers’ Welfare Trust. Please bring a face covering for use when accessing the public areas of the building.
