Fun, Learning, and Achievement

The Agriculture and Rural Issues (AGRI) Steering Group (#yfcagri) is ramping up the promotion of the group’s activities through a new newsletter and a Facebook group.

Members of AGRI gathered in June ahead of the Council meeting and agreed to do more to involve County AGRI links people. The newsletter has been circulated to members and features updates on CEJA among other actions.

An invitation to attend the Steering Group meetings in an observer capacity will also be offered to County AGRI links people who want to find out more.

During the meeting James Hutchinson from Wiltshire was elected as the new NFU representative and he will be deputised by Paul Hartley from Norfolk.

This year’s AGRI Forum that was held during Annual Convention, was the subject of much discussion and the Convention survey feedback is helping to shape future AGRI events.

“We have listened to what members have told us about the timing of the Forum and also the format,” said AGRI Chairman Russell Carrington. “We are looking into something that is more interactive to attract more members and also the possibility of a formal dinner with a guest speaker.”

For more information about #yfcagri, email the AGRI Officer Jo Wyles or call 02476 857200.
