THE Anglesey branch of the Farmers’ Union of Wales is looking forward to a busy county show next week.

The island's annual agricultural show - the 131st in its history - is being held at the Mona Showground from Tuesday, August 14 to Wednesday, August 15.

FUW Anglesey CEO Alaw Jones said: “We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to a jam-packed county show where we will be discussing farming matters and fair farm funding with our members and elected politicians.

"I hope many of you can join us for what promises to be an excellent show.”

North Wales Police and Crime commissioner Arfon Jones will be at the show from 11am – 1pm, on the Tuesday, as well as Sarah Wedge, of Davis Meade Property Consultants, one of the farming union’s land agents. She will be on hand to discuss planning applications and answer questions.

Keith Owen, from ADAS, will be on the FUW stand from 1pm onwards to answer questions about agricultural pollution. North Wales AM Mark Isherwood will be visiting on the Tuesday, and Cabinet Secretary Lesley Griffiths AM will be on the stand on the Wednesday, as well as Anglesey AM Rhun ap Iorwerth. FUW senior policy officer Dr Hazel Wright will be available all day on the Wednesday to give a presentation on TB and answer questions.

FUW Anglesey CEO Euros Jones said: “We will have local trio ‘Edern’ entertaining us on the Tuesday afternoon, and musician Gwilym Bowen Rhys on the Wednesday afternoon. Make sure you join us!”

Union officials will be presenting FUW rosettes to all young handlers over the course of the show. There will be a raffle, ‘name the special creature,’ and children’s colouring competitions too.

“We are both looking forward to welcoming you to what will be our first Anglesey show with the union, come and see us for a chat, cuppa and cake,” added Alaw and Euros.
