Denbigh and Flint farmers get social over breakfast

A warm welcome and mouth-watering smells awaited those who joined the Denbigh and Flint branches of the Farmers’ Union of Wales at a breakfast function, which was organised as part of the FUW’s Farmhouse breakfast week campaign (January 21 – January 27).

The event was held at Chapel Vestry in Cefn Meiriadog, St Asaph and was well attended by members and friends of the Union.

“It was about showcasing the most important meal of the day in a bid to raise awareness of the health and nutritional benefits of breakfast and the huge variety of top quality farm produce available in Wales – ranging from bacon, sausages and eggs to speciality dairy products, breads and cereals.

“We loved having everyone there and I thank all those who supported us this year either by cooking, sponsoring produce or helping us raise money for our worthy charities,” said FUW Denbigh and Flint CEO Mari Dafydd Jones.

The breakfast raised a fantastic amount of money for the FUW President’s charity appeal -  a total of £500  - with all the proceeds being split between Alzheimer’s Society Cymru and Farming Community Network.

“It was great to have members and friends of the Union coming together,  being a part of what we do, and sharing their thoughts and worries about the state of the industry, telling us their stories and helping us to understand how we can help each other.

“What better way to do that than round a table where we share great food and have a cup of tea. I’m already looking forward to next year’s breakfast events,” added Mari Dafydd Jones.
