Coronovirus – Keeping our clients and customers safe

We are keeping up to date with current news, obtaining the best advice, adapting our practices and planning ahead in order to operate in a way that keeps you safe and complies with government requirements and guidelines.

Our aim is to reduce risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level by taking preventative measures.

We will be updating this page to keep you informed of how we are operating and to refer you to the applicable guidance if you are interacting with us face to face.


  1. Deer Stalking, Practical Training and Marksmanship Coaching

We are keenly following the guidance on the phased return of Outdoor Sports and Recreation which will include one to one coaching.

How we are operating,

We will be applying the guidance on social distance.

We will arrange to meet at a location that does not require us to share transport.

Where the estate rifle and other equipment is shared we will be using disinfectant wipes to ensure cleanliness in addition to good hand hygiene.

PPE such as facemasks and gloves will be used where required.

What we respectfully ask of you,

Those at high risk or vulnerable category,

If you are within a ‘high risk’ category, the guidance has been that you stay at home and we certainly do not want to increase your risk of you contracting the virus. As the restrictions are eased we ask that you assess your risk as an individual and make an informed decsision on whether you book with us.

3. Online Shopping

We are keen to continue equipping you with good quality kit through our online shopping service whilst adhearing to guidance and minimising risk.

How we are operating,

In addition to all the workplace measures we are all becoming familiar with we minimize direct contact with or contamination of your products and packaging through use of PPE.

Although we are close to our local village post office we are reducing the frequency of visits in preference of one visit per week in order to limit face to face interaction.
