A new county adviser is working on behalf of members in Suffolk.
Caroline Cavill replaces Charles Hesketh in the role, after his promotion to regional policy manager. Caroline, who grew up on an arable farm in south Yorkshire, is looking forward to working closely with members, officeholders and group secretaries.
After university, she taught equine science for a number of years in agricultural colleges, before retraining as a rural surveyor, spending 13 years at Natural England in a number of roles within East Anglia, and nationally.
Most recently she has been the British Horse Society access field officer for the East region.
In her spare time, Caroline enjoys rural pursuits, including horse riding and visiting historic places, and is also studying for an Equine Facilitated Learning Diploma.
Caroline said: “I am delighted to be joining the NFU as a county adviser, working in a county where food and farming plays such a pivotal role.
“I’m looking forward to meeting members and working with key stakeholders to help Suffolk farms go from strength to strength.”
