Representatives of the FUW group: Having a well deserved break from their hard work serving refreshments

THE MEIRIONNYDD branch of the Farmers’ Union of Wales enjoyed a successful day at the County Show held at Corwen last Wednesday (Aug 24), with the FUW’s marquee on the show field being extremely busy with many meetings and discussions taking place throughout the day. 

The Union’s Meirionnydd County Executive Officer, Huw Jones, said: “We enjoyed a very successful day and the County branch is extremely grateful to the Ladies section of the Union in the Bala and Corwen areas for their hard work in preparing the refreshments throughout the day. I would also like to thank all those who contributed and helped in any way to ensure the event’s success.

“We also held a meeting with both Meirion Dwyfor Assembly member Dafydd Elis Thomas and MP Liz Saville Roberts. The discussion centred around the possible timetable for leaving the European Union, consequences for family farms and the rural economy. Many questions were raised regarding the future legislative framework, farm support and trade negotiations and members were encouraged to respond to the online Brexit questionnaire on the FUW’s website.”
