Socks, Socks and More Socks

The Glorious 12th (or 13th for this year) is fast approaching and with less than 20 sleeps to go who’s now getting excited? WOOP WOOP!!

We hope everyone is getting prepared and ready, but the question is have you got this seasons must haves??????

NYMMO Shooting Socks, Purple Heather Colour, 3 sizes available, Small (5 1/2 to 7 /12), Medium (8-10) and Large (10 1/2 to 12 1/2). These are an absolute necessity if you want to look the part on a shoot day.


For the Evening how about a pair or two of Shuttle Socks, designed by Clover Shuttlewood the wife of our very own NYMMO Gamekeeper Jimmy.  These newly launched socks combine fantastic game bird designs with a colour that can be accommodated in anybody’s sock drawer!  Available in one size (8-12), brilliant quality and the feedback received so far is “Top Drawer”.


Great Yorkshire Show 2018

NYMMO were stationed inside the Country Pursuits Marquee with the National Gamekeepers Organisation and to date this was the busiest Yorkshire Show we have attended.  The Gamekeepers were kept very busy answering questions, talking through moorland management procedures, explaining how traps work and very importantly selling socks.  The NYMMO embroidered Shooting Socks and Shuttle Socks have been launched this year to raise funds for our moorland group and they are certainly a top drawer seller.

“A Year In The Life Of A Grouse Moor” was again a resounding success, led by John Cavana the display was performed twice daily in the Country Pursuits Arena with keepers and their helpers which they gathered up from the audience on the day.  The children in each display performed brilliantly, waving flags, keeping a straight beating line, and listening intently to the keepers instructions, they were then all rewarded with a goodie bag.

Day 2 of the show was extra special as we had a Royal visitor Her Royal Highness Princess Anne came to chat with the keepers and watch the display, to which she gave great praise.

To summarise an excellent show, good to catch up with old friends, make new acquaintances, and hopefully leave  having educated many more individuals, so a job well done!



Lets Learn Moor 2018

 Lets Learn Moor is a brilliant initiative involving some real big hitters that are constantly working together to make the countryside what it is and educate as to why it is so priceless.

NYMMO Gamekeepers, BASC North, Countryside Learning, National Gamekeepers Organisation, North York Moors National Park, Hawk & Owl Trust, North Yorkshire Fire Services, North Yorkshire Police, Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue and local farmer Luke.

Education is a key message that NYMMO works very hard to promote and I think the whole team enjoys these school days as much as the visiting children.  HANDS ON is the way forward and these children got to use the floggers, water sprayers, work with gun dogs, pet the sheep and sheepdogs amongst lots of other exciting activities.

Learning about the beautiful countryside we live in and how it is maintained is so important and who said learning isn’t fun!

Feedback already…………

“The best school visit ever”

“Can we be first on the list for next year”.

“Our School would like to say a special thank you for the best school trip ever” “Just want to say what a fantastic day we had. The activities were brilliant and the children got a lot out of it, learning about things that are not often considered even though we are surrounded by this beautiful countryside. I asked the children to go home and tell their parents at least one thing that they had learnt and I had some super feedback from the parents the next day. A very worthwhile day out and even us as adults leant something new. We worked on their favourite activity the next day and the children came up with some fantastic reasons why.
Please keep our school informed as to any other days. I couldn’t wait to tell the other classes what they had missed, so hopefully we will have more classes attending next year”

With comments like these we must be doing something right so we’ve got lots to live up to as the planning begins now for Lets Learn Moor 2019.
