Agricultural student awarded first Henry Sale bursary


Andrew Jackson, managing partner at Fisher German, presents Tom Vacher with his cheque as part of the Henry Sale Graduate Bursary

An agricultural student from Somerset has been awarded the inaugural Henry Sale Graduate Bursary.
Henry was joint managing partner of Fisher German until his sudden death last April and partners and staff at the national firm of chartered surveyors and specialist property consultants have launched the bursary scheme in his memory.

Tom Vacher, who is studying for a BSc (Honours) degree in Rural Estate and Land Management at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester, is the first recipient of the annual prize.
The 20-year-old impressed partners at Fisher German for describing the steps he has taken towards becoming a chartered surveyor as well as his passion for developing a career in the industry.

He will receive £1000 (paid in two instalments) and is now enjoying a four-week placement with Fisher German at their Banbury office in South Bar.

Tom said he had heard about the Henry Sale Graduate Bursary from his lecturers, Diane Martin and Angela Cropley, at the Royal Agricultural University.

“I feel honoured to have won the bursary and I am really enjoying my work placement at Fisher German,” he said.

“I have secured a number of work placements with different rural agencies and practices in the South West as well as private estates which has improved my breadth of knowledge of the rural industry.

“I’m looking forward to gaining an in-depth understanding of one or two projects at Fisher German and following them through the strategic process to attain a deeper awareness of how they manage their agricultural work.”

Andrew Jackson, managing partner at Fisher German, said Tom was a worthy winner of the Henry Sale Graduate Bursary.

“We wanted to mark Henry’s tremendous contribution to the company and thought this would be an ideal way of remembering him,” he said.

“Tom’s enthusiasm for chartered surveying shone through in his application and this is a great way of encouraging young people into the industry.
