Alton & Petersfield NFU members meet Minister

East Hampshire farmers with Damian Hinds MP_64189Members of Alton and Petersfield NFU branch had a good meeting with East Hampshire MP and Education Secretary Damian Hinds at Ramsdean, near Petersfield on April 12. They updated the MP on the NFU's education work and its teaching resources that are teacher-approved and linked to the National Curriculum. Members also discussed rural crime, especially livestock worrying, supermarkets, dairy contracts and planning. Of course, Brexit was on the menu too, and members pressed home the case for the Government to legislate to protect British farming's standards in future trade deals.
