in Wye Small Village hall

John was educated at Wye College and now specialises in seed production.

Around the turn of the millennium Guy Smith, a rising star within the NFU challenged farmers to educate the population on all matters concerning our businesses.  His message was to “get on the parish council and write in your village magazine”. How can people possibly understand agriculture if they are not directly involved unless someone tells them…..  I put myself forward for election and have written a monthly article in the village magazine ever since.

Refreshments & Raffle are available after the talk.
All are welcome.
The talk is open to the public, we charge £3 for this talk
