Another great opportunity to catch up with colleagues at the end of the first day of the Cereals Event, with up to 60 Guild members and guests coming and going during the two hour reception.

Cereals 2010 - Riby, Craigie, LawGuild members Helen Riby (far left) of AgriSolutions and Jane Craigie, who organised the Bangers 'n' Beer event, with Cereals Event 2010 host farmer Robert Law.

The Arable Conference marquee made available by Haymarket Events provided a more spacious venue as members enjoyed excellent home-made sausages produced by the Chopping Block catering butchers and generously sponsored by Bayer CropScience thanks to Guild member Clive Rainbird.

They were washed down by an equally enjoyable beer donated by Nickerson Seeds using their barley variety Cassata, and followed by a mouth-watering supply of fresh strawberries and cream delivered by Gleadell, thanks to the good offices of Guild member Roger Moore of Ahead PR.

A well-deserved presentation of a certificate and giant cheque for €500 was made by deputy chairman Adrian Bell of Whisper PR to freelance photographer John Eveson (below right), overall winner of the IFAJ’s DeLaval-sponsored photographic competition, which is detailed here.

During the day, Guild members Jane King, Farmers Weekly editor, and Cedric Porter of consultancy Supply Intelligence, played a prominent role in the Oxford Farming Conferences staged at the Cereals Event by chairing two of the four sessions.

New pull-up banners displayed prominently at the front of the conference marquee reinforced the presence of Guild members at the biggest event in the arable sector calendar.

Many thanks to Peter Fleming of Shooting Stone Media for providing the images.
