YOU may be interested to know that one of Wimblington’s parish councillors, Liz Wright, has been chosen to participate in the six-day IFAJ/Agriterra Exposure-4-Development media tour to Uganda.

Liz is an accomplished editor of Practical Sheep Goats and Alpacas for Kelsey publishing and writes bookazines for them. She is well known for her work with donkeys and the Donkey Sanctuary.

She was recently a co-judge on the panel for Food Writer of the Year for the Guild of Food Writers 2013 Awards.

Now Liz will visit Uganda in November. What an honour to be among this elite group of 15 IFAJ (International Federation of Agricultural Journalists) members from around the world, embarking for the second time on such a unique and significant initiative.

Before being invited Liz was reviewed by her own guild. The selection process was based on the IFAJ criteria, which included a review of her previously published or broadcast work, her readership, listenership and viewership.
