A celebration of country pursuits hosted in the grounds of Escot House, Ottery St Mary, on Sunday 7th September, will be a magnet for the whole family. Admission is free.
The Devon Wildfowlers & Conservation Association in partnership with BASC are putting on a day of rural pursuits and entertainment, for everyone interested in the countryside.
Topsham Councillor Rob Newby says, "This is the sort of thing there should be more of. Local people gathering together to enjoy and share their love of the Devon countryside, an opportunity for the community to delight in the sheer variety of activity that Devon offers, especially for young people. I am proud of the commitment and endeavour the local community can show when given the chance".
Anglers, conservationists, and dog lovers, will have a treat at the events and expert advice on show. Young shots and shooters will enjoy the expert tuition and competition clays with cash prizes. Wildlife enthusiasts will love the information and getting to know the various groups catering to their interests.
