Doug Balderson is Regional Chairman for the Greater Lincolnshire and Peterborough Region and Branch Chairman for South Kesteven.
It's so good to report a real period of good weather - which in turn means that people in general feel stronger to take on life's troubles, woes and business adversities and most of all - opportunities.
Lincolnshire Show is now in the past and the planning cycle for next year has already started. Thank you to those who came and exhibited with us - we all hope it was successful and you are able to grow your businesses from thee experience. Watch this space for next year's stand opportunities.
Welcome on board to the new members who have joined us recently - especiallyl to those whom I did meet at the Show. Please feel free to talk to our Lincoln Office for any information with regards to Service Providers or for political matters that we may be able to assist with or even lobby on your behalf.
We welcome the news, for our rural region, the £160m boost in investment to UK agricultural science and technology from the Government which aims to "transform farming in the UK". Some of the largest tracts of the most profitable food producing land in the country run's through our region band. I hope we will be linked with the centres for agricultural innovation and they will help to spawn a new generation of opportunites and jobs. Really good news for our rural area.
The period of the AGM's is almost on us and would request that you do make an effort and help and support your local Branch Committee. They work very hard on your behalf bringing matters to the fore and organising events for you to share.
Please see the Branch Events
lists and website for further details throughout the Region. Though you may be a membe or the Wash Branch, it does not preclude you from attending another Branch event i.e the Peterborough or the Lincoln event - the more chances to network and extend your business base!
