British Shooting Show 2017

A little look back at our long weekend at the British Shooting Show 2017

We filled the van full of Collins Nets Gamekeeping Supplies and set off on the 3 hour journey to Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.

As soon as we arrived we realised what a BIG show this is. I mean we knew it was big, but when you have to try seriously hard to work out how to get from the main entrance to your stand in Hall 4 – you know you are in for a BIG weekend.

A lovely warm welcome from the British Shooting Show team on the main desk made us feel right at home.

Here is a few photos from our time at the show:

We had a great time, it was lovely to see some familiar faces from the shows that we went to last year.

A big shout out has to go to the team ‘over the road’ from us on the Pass it On Young Sports / The Ole Hedge Creeper / Countrymans Diary – what a great bunch of people they all are. Ollie and Dawn enjoyed many an entertaining chat with them over the 3 days at the show. We look forward to seeing them again at the West of England Game Fair in March.

We also had a lovely time talking with the various friendly faces on the NGO / Gamekeepers Welfare Trust stand, eating too many pies from the Cumbrian Pie Company and it was great to meet Tracey from Countrymans Weekly. It was also really nice to meet John from Fourteenacre – he really does know his stuff!

But the best part of exhibiting at the British Shooting Show was meeting so many of our customers.

Dawn’s highlight was when one customer came up to the stand “just to say you guys do a really good job, thank you” 

Now you just don’t get compliments like that everyday, and especially when we are stuck in the depths of Dorset in the Collins Nets Ltd warehouse / office!

Our WIN a Goodnature A24 Trap competition was incredibly popular with over 100 entries!

The lucky winner, Julie, was chosen at random. She is very pleased & looking forward to receiving their prize early next week – apparently we made their valentines day! 🙂

Collins Nets Ltd would like to thank everybody who came to see us at The British Shooting Show. It was great to meet so many of you face to face and receive lots of positive feedback on our customer service.

…Many thanks for your continued support and business.
