The Gloucestershire Wildfowlers Association is dedicated to promoting sustainable Wildfowling on the Severn Estuary through their three key principles of Conservation, Education and Recreation. The association was formed over 50 years ago by a group of local wildfowlers who had the vision and foresight to identify the need to protect both wildfowl and wildfowling to guarantee the future of the sport. The club now offers members extensive opportunities to pursue this ancient art in a 21st century context through managed access to over 30 miles of foreshore on both sides of the estuary, over land which is either owned or leased by the association. The GWA has successfully managed the shooting on Frampton Marshes since 1957 and enjoys the ongoing support of the WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre.
The GWA welcomes novices and experienced shooters alike and has vacancies for new members. They have a well established structure for introducing newcomers to the sport. If you’re interested in the ancient craft of wildfowling please visit either of the GWA stands overlooking the main arena and the lake.
