How being outside and carving wood helped this Game Fair exhibitor deal with PTSD

2024-01-26T16:31:10+00:00

"Being outside in nature 100% helps our mental health." Such is the view of Rob Dalton of Daltonwood, an artist whom you can watch at work at The Game Fair. He works in wood using chainsaws to create sculptures. An artist? Ten years ago however, nobody would have been more surprised than Rob to be described as an artist, let alone exhibiting at The Game Fair. As he says: "My sister commented, 'Rob, where has this come from? You've never had an artistic bone in your body.'" https://youtu.be/i3cucFcr4_g?si=IOYJG7v-iZ7NJaoj Ten years ago Rob was crippled by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). ...

Cutting a playing card in half with a rifle bullet at long range. Shooting a coin tossed in the air, at a range of 90 feet.

Glass blowing – watch craftspeople in action at The Game Fair

2024-01-08T15:32:18+00:00

Glass blowing is an ancient craft that has been around since the days of the Old Testament. Blown glass can create many things - a beautiful ornament, a stunning light fitting or a practical dish or glass. So what is glass blowing? Basically it is the skill of creating shapes and objects in molten glass by blowing air into it. Master craftspeople can create everything from a wine glass to a statue. Furnaces in a workshop heat the glass to make it pliable and then a blowpipe shapes and introduces air into the glass. The blowpipe is rolled on a special ...

2024-01-04T11:37:11+00:00

Spring is on its way and it's the time when many people think about taking on a new working dog puppy. The evenings are getting lighter and the weather is improving - both of which make training a youngster a little bit easier.

Darren Kirk We asked award-winning gundog trainer Darren Kirk of Kirkbourne Spaniels for his tips on choosing a working dog puppy.

How you can do your bit this January and encourage people to ‘Eat Wild’

2024-01-03T15:52:04+00:00

Do you know about Veganuary? It's an annual challenge to encourage people to follow a vegan lifestyle during the month of January. Which is curious, as recent research shows that Britain is turning its back on veganism, with the health concious younger generation buying more game and venison, thanks to celebrity chefs publicising its health benefits. To counter Veganuary, Eat Wild, the development board for all wild meat, has launched "Join in this January". If you go shooting - whether as a Gun, a picker-up or a beater, you can take part and help to educate local communities about the benefits ...

Back in 2005 Jamie Oliver initiated a campaign originally called "Feed Me Better" to move British schoolchildren towards eating healthy foods.

2024-01-23T17:17:18+00:00

"As a boy we had hedgehogs everywhere, ground nesting birds ..." So what has happened? Why are hedgehogs in decline and some of the birds we used to hear so much?

The farm currently has 4000 head of ewe and 300 head of cattle. He says: "We're all under threat, our way of life is under threat and we need to fight back.... Nobody ...
