His Grace the Duke of
Beaufort will present the BHS Fellowship to
William Blane and Rob Lovatt, who qualified
at the end of last year after a gruelling
three day examination.
Also receiving the award is
Christopher Bartle, the first person to
receive an Honorary BHS Fellowship.
BHS chief executive Kay Driver said: "We
are looking forward to meeting our members
at Badminton, and we welcome the opportunity
to answer questions from members and non

BHS Enclosure that has proved so popular
with members for many years will no longer
be available, since Badminton changed the
arrangements last year."
