Last week I participated in a round table discussion with local farmers. We discussed the challenges that the farming community face and their needs to ensure security in the long term. Thank you to Richard and Denise Plummer for hosting (The Gazette and Herald Farming Diary writer).
I am passionate about our need to ensure we help inspire, encourage and support those looking to get into the farming world. It is particularly difficult for young people from non farming backgrounds. If elected as your next MP I want to work together on initiatives to help our young – to support the long term survival of our farming community and also Lackham College. I will then push these ideas and initiatives at a national level. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have thoughts on this matter.
