FUW hosts range of activities at Pembrokeshire Show


The Farmers' Union of Wales stand at this month's Pembrokeshire County Show (August 19-21) will provide showgoers the opportunity to discuss issues of concern with local politicians including Stephen Crabb MP, Simon Hart MP and Paul Davies AM on the Tuesday morning of the show.

"We are once again looking forward to welcoming members and friends of the union to the stand to have a chat and offer advice either through fellow industry organisations or union staff," said FUW Pembrokeshire county executive officer Rebecca Voyle.

"We will have displays about the CAP reforms and other general information so people are welcome to call in to discuss how the changes may affect them.

"Natural Resources Wales staff will be with us every day between 10am and 2pm to provide general advice and information on local nutrient management initiatives and Glastir officers will also be on hand every day between 10am and 3pm to answer questions about the Glastir scheme.

"They will also be able to help farmers complete the Glastir scorecard to establish what the scheme will mean for their farm."

Colin Davies, of RCD Finance Ltd, will be at the stand on the Tuesday to discuss farm machinery, buildings, dairy cow and renewables finance with members and Philip Meade, of the union's land agents Davis Meade Property Consultants, will be on the stand on the Wednesday to provide advice on a variety of issues ranging from rent reviews to compensation claims and renewable energy contracts.

There will be a chance for visitors to win £50 in Marks and Spencer's vouchers in a prize draw from FUW Insurance Services Ltd.

"We are also looking forward to having staff from E-ON with us on all three days to discuss farmers' energy requirements and provide free no-obligation quotes while RABI will be joining us on the Wednesday afternoon between 2pm and 4pm to offer Christmas cards and 2015 calendars for sale with all the proceeds going to the charity," added Mrs Voyle.

FUW staff will also be looking to sign up walkers and sponsorship for the union's Wales Coast Path Challenge in September in aid of Ty Hafan and Ty Gobaith Children's Hospices.
