The Farmers’ Union of Wales has appointed Nia Wyn Evans as their area officer for south Montgomeryshire to succeed Montgomery-based Tony Williams who recently retired from the post after 26 years’ service.

Mrs Evans, who has previously worked for the FUW as an area officer in Meirionnydd and as the union’s welfare officer, said: “I feel very privileged to have been appointed as an area officer for south Montgomeryshire and can’t wait to meet the FUW members and insurance clients in my new area.”

Together with her husband Dylan, she runs a 25-acre smallholding with 120 Beltex ewes and 12 chickens on the Mawddach estuary.

Mrs Evans will be based in the FUW county office in Newtown and will be present at Welshpool livestock market on Mondays to deal with and address any issues or customer insurance needs.

Having also worked as an educational business careers adviser for Careers Wales and as a YFC organiser for Meirionnydd she looks forward to using her previous knowledge and experience to develop her insurance portfolio in south Montgomeryshire.

FUW business development director Emyr James said: “We are delighted to welcome Nia back to the fold and are quite sure that she will maintain the high level of service for our members in Montgomeryshire.

“We wish her every success in her new role,” added Mr James.
