在诺森伯兰德河畔赫内克姆的Kennel Club的霍尔霍普和Burngrange Estate曾在北汉姆·霍尔格朗庄园工作，已被巴斯克作为其7月2020年7月的比赛者选择。
Raymond Holt is the first gamekeeper to be employed by the Kennel Club and, prior to working at the Estate which opened in 2017, had more than 30 years’ experience on various estates across Scotland including ten years on the renowned Kinpurnie estate near Dundee where a number of field trials were held every year including the very successful 1990 International Gundog League championship.
Each month this year, BASC is profiling a UK gamekeeper and their story as part of Year of the Gamekeeper 2020, an initiative to support, raise the profile and ensure the future of the Gamekeepers’ Welfare Trust, a charity which supports gamekeepers, ghillies and stalkers, and their families, in times of hardship and strife as well as helping young people access college courses and future employment.
托尼•Allcock OBE养犬俱乐部主席补充道ed: “The Kennel Club’s Emblehope and Burngrange Estate is a relatively ‘new kid on the block’ as far as working dog venues are concerned, so it is wonderful news that BASC has given this accolade to Raymond whose passion and hard work deserve to be honoured in this way. We send our congratulations to him as well as our thanks for the sterling work he has done thus far to develop our Centre of Excellence for Working Dogs.”
