I'm sure you'll agree reading a good book or magazine can take you anywhere and during these unsettling times losing yourself in a story may be the perfect distraction. For me it feels good to relax and disappear into a world of fact and fiction and with our period of staying at home it’s the ideal excuse to try and relax with a good book or magazine. I hope my latest feature in April's issue of the Shooting Gazette gives you the opportunity to grab a cuppa and unwind with inspiring gundog trainer Sam Thatcher and her team of awesome cocker spaniels.
I never known anything like what we're experiencing right now. I know you'll be as worried as I am about the health of your family and friends and the livelihoods of those around you. We've all got a role to play in supporting our gundog community and clubs as well as local communities across the country. My latest article in this week's Countryman's Weekly reflects on the wonderful spirit of camaraderie. I can't think of a time when this feeling has been more needed. Supporting each other in these challenging times will help us get through the next few months.
I'm sending my thoughts to you all, hoping that you are finding the strength both physically and emotionally to weather these unsettling times.
Take care xx
