Flintshire members discuss future of agriculture

FUW Flintshire members discussed the way forward for the agricultural industry at their annual general meeting at Caerwys Town Hall recently when a good turnout of members provided speakers with plenty of challenging questions. “Our first guest speaker was Gwyn Rowlands from Cadwyn Clwyd who gave a very informative presentation on the new RDP 2014-2020 programme and how the local action groups will assist in benefitting the local rural economy,” said FUW Denbigh and Flint county executive officer Mari Dafydd Jones. “Our second guest speaker, North Wales Conservative AM Mark Isherwood, then addressed many rural issues including housing issues and the single farm payment. “I thank both of our speakers on behalf of the Flintshire membership for their informative contributions.” The evening was chaired by Flinthshire county chairman Tim Faire, who provided members with his annual report highlighting some of the most important events over the past 12 months within the county. Members heard about the contributions made to the Hybu Cig Cymru Roadshow by the Flintshire branch and the Denbigh and Flint Show where the county put the spotlight on Welsh milk and lamb by hosting a competition on who can drink a pint of milk and eat a Welsh lamb burger the fastest. “An interesting and informative evening was capped with some light refreshments provided by the Flintshire ladies committee, whom we thank for their contributions,” added Ms Jones.
