The CLA team will be out in full force at this year’s Great Yorkshire Show from 13-16 July, and presents an opportunity whereby members can interact face-to-face for the first time since the start of the pandemic.
The CLA stand will have no on-stand caterers at this year’s show, but members are welcome to enjoy a reduced offering of refreshments such as tea, coffee and wine. We are all hoping to provide our usual full service at next year’s show.
CLA President Mark Bridgeman will be joining us on the Tuesday, and members wanting to speak to him can do so at the stand until the early afternoon. Members will also be able to meet new CLA Director North Lucinda Douglas. Retiring CLA Director North Dorothy Fairburn will also say her farewells on this day.
Also on the Tuesday, the CLA will be launching our Countryside Code campaign and CLA Senior Access Adviser, Sophie Dwerryhouse will be on hand to answer member’s questions on any issues about public rights of way such as footpaths and bridleways access issues.
Wednesday – CLA Vice President Victoria Vyvian will be at the stand in the morning, and will be joined by CLA’s Yorkshire Branch Chair Richard Murray Wells to host an event by the CLA’s Women’s Network. In the afternoon from 3.30pm onwards, the Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust, will host a reception at the CLA’s stand.
On the Thursday we will be hosting an event with Yorkshire Agricultural Society on theme of rural business support.
On Friday we expect to welcome Members of Parliament to the CLA stand at various points during the day to discuss agricultural transition policy, business support and criminal activity in rural areas.
