Poul Christensen has been re-elected as NFYFC’s President for a second year.

Poul, who has been involved in the organisation for around 60 years, including time as a member, was voted in unanimously at the 82nd Annual General Meeting in Blackpool.

Sam Allen from Oxfordshire FYFC proposed the motion to re-elect Poul as President and it was seconded by Rachel Milner from County Durham FYFC. Sam said: “Poul has spent a lifetime in Young Farmers. He is passionate about the organisation and is someone who can continue to offer a great deal.”

Poul, who has recently stepped down as Chair of Natural England, was delighted to accept the role for a second year and spoke about the tremendous support that young farmers give each other and to people around them. He said: “That support is so important in society and it epitomises this organisation, probably above any other than I know.”

He continued by asking everyone to support NFYFC’s Rural+ campaign and to “look out for each other.”

After the AGM, Poul recorded the following message for Young Farmers and spoke about how impressed he was when members supported those affected by the Somerset Floods.
