SWUF wins award

 At a ceremony at Dulverton on the 12th June 2012, John Waldon, on behalf of SWUF, accepted an award from the Exmoor National Park Authority for all the work the Federation has done to raise the profile of farming issues on the moors in recent years. The ceremony was part of a celebration of the completion of the national park’s 2007 – 12 Management Plan and launch of its new 2012 – 17 “Partnership Plan”.

 Dr Nigel Stone, when presenting the award to SWUF, said that he had been incredibly impressed with the work of the Federation and was grateful for all it had done in bringing to the attention of Ministers and others, the importance of upland farming in maintaining the iconic upland landscapes of Exmoor. He said that he looked forward to continuing to work closely with SWUF over the coming years.
