THE National Farmers Union for Wales will host two seminars on their stand at this year’s edition of a popular community event.

NFU Cymru will be present at the 2019 Denbigh and Flint Show, which takes place at the Denbigh Show Office in Holywell on Thursday, August 15.

The group hope that by talking about particular issues, the industry will be better placed to get past the ‘uncertain times for Welsh agriculture’.

Their first seminar, due to begin at 11.30am, will discuss Welsh Government’s ‘Sustainable Farming and our Land consultation’.

During the seminar, Clwyd County Chair, Paul Williams, NFU Cymru President, John Davies, and NFU Cymru Director, John Mercer, will explain the proposals put forward by Welsh Government in this consultation.

The trio will focus on future food and farming policy and support measures in Wales post-Brexit.

Following on from that meeting, another seminar will take place at 2pm to discuss the current political issues which are affecting NFU Cymru members across Clwyd.

A number of Welsh Assembly members will attend the seminar, including the minister for environment, energy and rural affairs, Lesley Griffiths AM, of Welsh Labour.

Also in attendance will be Plaid Cymru shadow minister for environment and rural affairs and member of the Climate Change, Environment and Rural Affairs Committee, Llyr Gruffydd AM, Conservative shadow minister for communities and local government and member of the Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee, Mark Isherwood AM and Gwyn Williams, the local Liberal Democrat representative.

Paul Williams, NFU Cymru Clwyd County Chairman said: “At one of the most uncertain times for Welsh agriculture, we need to know all the facts.

“The first seminar, which will focus on the current Welsh Government consultation, will allow us to discuss what is outlined and help us to understand it better before we respond.

“The political seminar will also give us the chance to discuss the political climate in the local area as well as further afield, with our minister and local representatives.

“There will be refreshments on the stand all day and we will also be paying special tribute to our County Chairman, Dafydd Jones, who sadly passed away earlier this year, so please come along to the stand at 9.30am.”
