The Farmers’ Union of Wales and FUW Insurance Services Ltd. are looking forward to welcoming members and customers to the Usk Show on Saturday 11 September.
The event, which is one of a few to go ahead in person this year, will be held at Usk Showground, Gwernesney, Usk and promises to be a busy and successful day to celebrate the very best of Monmouthshire farming and rural life.
FUW Glamorgan and Gwent County Executive Officer Sharon Pritchard said: “We are very excited to welcome friends, family, members, FUW Insurance Services customers and everyone who wants to find out more about the Union to our marquee on the day. We are pleased to be able to support this event, meet people in person and are hopeful that events such as this signal a return to normal.”
Joining the FUW Ltd. group on the day are the DPJ Foundation, Wales Rural and Wildlife Crime Coordinator Rob Taylor, and police officers from the Gwent Police force. The county office has also arranged a raffle and childrens competition.
“In addition to welcoming local politicians to our marquee to discuss the most critical farming matters, members will have the chance to discuss mental health and rural crime concerns throughout the day as well. We made a commitment to keep the spotlight on mental health issues for as long as it remains a problem in our rural communities and the last 12 months have been tough for many.
“With this in mind, we look forward to launching the next FUW campaign in cooperation with the DPJ Foundation and police forces across Wales, putting the spotlight on an increase in domestic violence and the effect it has on people's mental health. Members are invited to join us for this launch at 11.30am at our marquee,” added Sharon Pritchard.
