THE Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) is launching its' second series of popular roadshows this month.

The first of the shows takes place on Thursday April 11 at the Maypole Inn in Somerset.

Staff will be travelling across the country to hold talks on issues concerning the British countryside, from bag sizes and badgers to lead ammunition and licensing. Guests will have the chance to listen to the organisation's latest research findings and thoughts for the year ahead and will have the opportunity to raise important questions.

Hosting the events is GWCT’s director of communications Andrew Gilruth, who said: “This will give members, and those yet to join, the chance to learn more about what’s really going on in the British countryside.

“We wouldn’t be able to achieve the good work we do for the environment – either as an organisation or the nation as a whole – without the support of ordinary, hard-working people.

“We want as many people as possible to learn about the work we’re doing and the issues we all face in the countryside. This is your chance to share your thoughts in person and we look forward to welcoming you on the night.”

Following Thursday's show, the following dates are also available in the South West:

  • Gupshill Manor, Tewkesbury - Tuesday 30th April 2019
  • Chapter House, Salisbury - Thursday 9th May 2019
