Updated flood newsletter and flood damage survey

The  NFU’s latest version of their flood newsletter is available to download - see below. It is full of important and useful information.

The NFU is working with the Farmer Network and other organisations (we are involved) to assess the scale of the impact of storm Desmond and subsequent flooding on farms, so we are better placed to help farmers and their businesses recover and get appropriate support from government agencies and other organisations.

A team of people from the Farmer Network are contacting farm businesses to complete a survey over the telephone. It can also be completed on line.   Please do encourage any farmer you know that has been affected by the floods, even in a minor way to take part in the survey. They can fill it in online - it can be found here. Or get in touch with the Farmer Network 01768 868615

Fingers crossed for the weather over the next few days and beyond.

Happy Christmas and New Year to you all.
