I have been asked to circulate a polite reminder regarding insurances. Please remember that when any events out of the normal farm remit are organised, whether this is the use of a field for car parking, a herd visit or just a party in a field, you must notify your [or the host farm’s] insurance company of the date, event and expected number of visitors. Where events are organised under the auspices of the Society you must get in touch with Jo Bailey [breed secretary] in good time so that she can notify the Society’s insurers.
A risk assessment must also be completed for each event. I have a template if you require one. There is also an HSE trailer guidance information sheet. If visitors are going to be transported round the farm, the trailer must meet the standards required. These directives are only to protect you the farmer/organiser.
Cathryn, our Treasurer will be in touch soon with the invoice for your annual subscription. Cost is as last year: Herd/Joint/Family Membership - £10.00 | Stockperson - £5.00 | Junior [under 18] – FREE.
Email addresses and current phone numbers. If you have had any changes in either or both please let me know as soon as possible so that you don’t miss any Club news.
Look forward to catching up with lots of you at the Bull sales - Rosemary Dickie, secretary.
