The CLA North team will be out in force at this year’s Westmorland County Show which will be held over two days on Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 September.

Members are welcome to join us for refreshments such as tea, coffee or a glass of wine. Regional Advisers will be there to discuss any landowning issues with members.

Notable activities at the CLA stand include:

There will also be ample opportunity for members to ask questions about issues they may have. Coffees, teas and continental pastries available to attending members.
  • Wednesday, from 3pm to 4pm, the CLA North team will host an exclusive drinks reception (wine, soft drinks, coffees and teas – with nibbles), where members can meet up with new CLA Director North Lucinda Douglas and CLA Cumbria Branch Chair Susie Villiers-Smith.
