The Harvest Farmers Club Journal extends a very warm invitation to members to “come and enjoy your home-from-home”. All the familiar facilities are fully open, offering a safe and secure location for you to enjoy a comfortable break or important business meetings.
The Harvest issue of the Farmers Club Journal – now arriving with members – also reports on the 178th Annual General Meeting, held in July, the freshly refurbished No 3 Entrance to Whitehall Court, rural youth issues, longwool sheep and much more.
The AGM report includes profiles of 2021 Chairman Keith Redpath from near Kelso and 2021 Vice Chairman John Lee from Devon. A printed copy of the 2019 Annual Report & Accounts is also included, plus details of a special joint Club seminar with the British Crop Production Council scheduled for September, looking at the challenges and opportunities of global climate change for UK farmers.
A vibrant two pages of Under 30s news explains what they’ve been up to during lockdown – which seems to pivot around on-line chat platforms and a lot of cocktails! Plans to get back to farm walks and Club dinners are detailed too.
Chef’s article tempts us to return to the Restaurant, where firm favourites are on offer, and the Autumn menu is being prepared – bringing you the simply cooked seasonal, quality British food which members have so come to enjoy.

- Club News, including plans for 2021
