The March and Chatteris branch of the National Farmers Union held its annual meeting which was attended by NE Cambs MP Steve Barclay.
Mr Barclay said: “Fenland is a key player in the UK’s agricultural industry and last Friday NFU president Meurig Raymond attended the March and Chatteris NFU AGM.
“It was a pleasure to meet Mr Raymond and to catch up with our local farmers over breakfast at Skylark Garden Centre.
“I will continue to work with the NFU and the farming community which contribute so much to our local economy.
In December 1908 the NFU idea was born as an organisation to represent the interests of farmers.
