NFU Cymru is launching an ward that recognises the role farmers play in their community.

The winner will receive £500 and two runners-up will be awarded £100 each.

The Welsh Rural Community Champion Award is being sponsored by NatWest.

Applications are invited from throughout Wales from those farmers who use what little spare time they have away from the farm in helping their community.

The closing date is Friday, June 12, and the winner will be announced at this year’s Royal Welsh Show, in July.

To enter, email helen. or call 01982 554200.
