Rural Community Champions Project

RCC travels north to Bishop Burton
The start of February was a busy time for the Rural Community Champions project as we travelled North to promote the campaign at our Bishop Burton event, near Yorkshire. Agrii, headed up by John Moore (with much help from his team of volunteers) organise a farmer event, annually, at the Bishop Burton College. This year the event welcomed 500 farmers, suppliers, manufactures and Agrii staff through the gates so we had plenty of new faces to engage with.
Sarah and I keep finding ourselves out in the cold and Bishop Burton didn’t disappoint on this front, but again despite the weather we had some really great interest in the Rural Community Champions so it was completely worth it. Many of the local businesses who exhibited kindly agreed to take leaflets away and promote the campaign from their local offices – thanks everyone!
