A Marsdens Game customer has been awarded a ‘Special Commendation’ award at the 2019 Purdey Awards for Game and Conservation.
The awards, which were presented on the 4th of February, at Apsley House in London, has been held annually since 1999 and were set up to promote a wider understanding of the conservation benefits conferred on the countryside by best practice shooting and game management. Applications for the awards are open to any size shoot, anywhere in the UK so even being shortlisted is a significant achievement.
This year, a special award was given to the Iford Downs Shoot, an account managed by Game feed specialist Jamie Horner, which is part of Thorney Moss Game, based in East Sussex. The award was given because of the species and variety of rich wildlife on the shoot, thanks to the Crops and over wintering supplementary feeding, supplied by ForFarmers under the Marsdens' brand. The shoot has created a habitat and environment that has recorded an impressive 80 different species.
