#WeAreCLA - Show us how you run your business



‘We are CLA’ is a chance to take to social media and show our audience the work and enjoyment that goes into your business. It's a chance to demonstrate how you create a positive effect in your area and to create a CLA membership that holds a stronger sense of community. 

Each month we will be selecting a CLA member or contact who uses social media regularly. They will be invited to take over our Instagram account 'Country Land and Business' for 24 hours to showcase a day's work. Highlights of the event will be posted throughout the day on our Twitter page and there will be a build-up to the event beforehand.

October's takeovers

Charles Bridgeman

Charles Bridgeman will be the next member to take part in our #WeAreCLA campaign on 31 October. Managing the Leaton Knolls Estate which covers 1500 acres of mixed crop, grass and forestry, Charles will be passing the camera to his team who have organised a Halloween event on the day of the takeover. Boasting a flock of Shropshire Sheep, a Christmas tree business which supplies trees to the local councils and a small business park, this takeover will cover how a large diversification business is run.
