Annual county meetings go virtual

Minette ahead of meeting Boris after PMQ

Time is running out to book your place at one of six NFU East Anglia annual county meetings this autumn.

Members can find out how the NFU is working at county, regional and national level on issues including Brexit, rural crime and the new Environmental Land Management scheme.

They will also have a chance to elect county representatives for the NFU’s regional commodity boards covering livestock, dairy and combinable crops.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, all the meetings will be virtual this year, via Microsoft Teams, with any elections taking place via email.

NFU East Anglia Regional Director Gary Ford said: “We are facing a crucial period for British food and farming and I would urge members to get involved.

"The social side will definitely be missed this year but these meetings will still be a timely opportunity to find out how the NFU is working nationally, regionally and locally on your behalf. ”

The full meeting programme is below. If you need help with using Teams, please call the regional office on 01638 672111 or speak to your county adviser
