FUW urges members to attend CAP reform meetings


The Farmers' Union of Wales today urged farmers to make their views known on CAP reform by attending open meetings organised across Wales by Farming Connect over the next month.

The four meetings, to be attended by Natural Resources and Food Minister Alun Davies, will be held on Thursday March 20 at the lecture theatre, Llysfasi College, Ruthin Rd, Ruthin, LL15 2LB; on Thursday March 27 at Hafod a Hendre, Royal Welsh Showground, Llanelwedd, Builth Wells, LD2 3SY; on Thursday April 3 at Nantyffin Hotel and Motel, Llandissilio, Clynderwen, Pembrokeshire, SA66 7SU and on Monday April 7 at the lecture theatre, Glynllifon College, Clynnog Rd, Glynllifon, Gwynedd, LL54 5DU.

FUW president Emyr Jones said: “We know it is a busy time of year for farmers, many of whom are busy lambing, but these meetings provide a good opportunity for farmers to question the Minister on all aspects of the CAP reforms and I would urge people to attend.”

The meetings will all run from 7.30pm until 9pm, with tea and coffee served at the end.

FUW members are urged to book their spaces by contacting Einir Davies on 01970 636297 or email: einir.davies@menterabusnes.co.uk
