THIS year’s Anglesey County Show provided the perfect opportunity to celebrate the100 year birthday of the NFU Cymru branch on Anglesey.

Members were invited to a private drinks reception at the NFU Cymru stand where they joined the current county office holder team and former chairmen, to raise a glass to the last 100 years.

Elwyn Evans, Anglesey county chairman said: “100 years of NFU Cymru’s presence on Anglesey is quite an achievement. The union has represented farmers on the island through a period of significant change.

“From what were simple beginnings, NFU Cymru has developed into a respected trade association, and has developed to include lobbying on behalf of farmers.

It also offers insurance and investment advice with its close links with NFU Mutual, along with member affinities as diverse as farm vehicles, fuel, tyres and legal assistance.” Mr Evans added: "It was a chance to meet old and new friends."
