Despite being surprisingly few in number, Members and Friends of the Guild who made their way to the NFU Mutual stand on the first evening of the Royal Welsh Show enjoyed good banter, and glass of wine or beer, and a first-class view of the main ring entertainment.
A room twice the size of the packed 2012 venue was laid on by Tim Price of host and sponsor NFU Mutual, and it was good to see media representatives of NFU Wales and the CLA among the visitors.
The event marked the first presentation of the Livestock category award in the newly re-introduced Guild photography competition by Jonathan Guy of JG Animal Health to winner Wayne Hutchinson (pictured left below). Catherine Hughes collected the runner-up prize on behalf of Bruce Jobson.
Among Members and Friends who attended the Guild’s Royal Welsh Show reception were (from left) PR specialists Anne and Denis Chamberlain; Catherine Hughes, CLA Wales communications manager; and EnergyNow magazine editor Roger Abbott.
