Case Study The Angus Glens Moorland Group The Angus Glens Moorland Group has done a lot of work with their rural communities. We have held a number of community events from school barbecues to, most recently, our Easter Funday.

All free events which invite the public to our estates to enjoy and learn more about Moorland Management.

We also raise money at these events which we donate back to the rural schools, local charities and hospitals.

We attend local shows with our AGMG stand, where we have film showings, educational displays and demonstrations.

Last year we brought school children onto our estates to see first hand what our gamekeepers do throughout the year and on one occasion in the summer cooked a variety of game for them to taste.

At Christmas in conjunction with the Grampian Moorland Group we launched 'Game for Giving' where we donated food parcels to charities at Christmas. They contained game meat with fresh ingredients to make meals with easy step by step recipes included in the bags.

Gamekeepers have also helped rescue birds of prey and have on occasion successfully rereleased them into the wild.

The group has made a succession of educational films demonstrating the work they do, some of which are now being used as educational tools in schools and colleges in the UK and most recently Canada.

The keepers have also helped to tidy and clear up local nursery and care home gardens and have donated countless pints of blood!
