The Farmers’ Union of Wales is looking forward to a busy Royal Welsh Winter Fair, which takes place in Llanelwedd at the end of November (Monday, November 27 - Tuesday, November 28).
Those visiting the FUW over the two days can look forward to plenty of expert discussions with staff and officials with much of the focus being placed on the Habitat Wales Scheme, Sustainable Farming Scheme, and funding for agriculture.
The FUW is also asking visitors to the stand about their experience with livestock worrying and those completing the survey will be entered into a draw to win the Union’s 2024 hamper, which is sponsored by FUW Insurance Services.
There is an opportunity to purchase the Union’s Christmas cards and 2024 calendars, which are sold in aid of the President’s charity - the Wales Air Ambulance.The winners of the Christmas card designs will be revealed and presented with their prizes on Monday, November 27 at 11:30am at the FUW stand. The winner of the FUW’s 2024 calendar front cover will also be presented with her prize.
Speaking ahead of the event, FUW President Ian Rickman said: “As we speed towards the end of the year, we look forward to discussing all farming matters with members at our stand over the two days.
“These are challenging times for the industry and I look forward to sharing what we have done to ensure there are thriving, sustainable, family farms in Wales and to hear from our members about what concerns they have going forward.”
A warm welcome with a cuppa and a mince pie is guaranteed for all who visit the Union stand, which is located next to the main ring in South Glamorgan Hall.
