On Monday 22 July and Tuesday 23 July, Jon Swain and I attended the Royal Welsh Show in Builth Wells to spread the word about NFU Energy, the various ways we can support members and answer any energy-related questions they may have on the day.
This was my first time at the show and the sheer size of the event was definitely a sight to behold. Once I’d found my way through the vast site passing a smorgasbord of stalls, stands and activities I found my way to the NFU area ready to meet some members. Our stand was facing out to the main ring with plenty of seating which made it a prime area for members to get a good view of the events and watch the Prince of Wales dishing our awards throughout the day.
The tea and coffee flowed continuously throughout the day and the endless supply biscuits, Welsh cakes and Bara Brith were enjoyed by the members. During the two days, Jon and I got to talk with many members about metering problems, nightmare suppliers, issues with other brokers, RHI HealthChecks, the NFU Energy Buying Group and much, much more. It’s always a pleasure to meet NFU farmers and growers face to face and to have the time to get to really understand what other issues really matter to them for us to focus on in the future.
If you missed us at the Royal Welsh Show and have something energy-related, you’d like to talk to us about, please give us a call on 024 7669 6512.
