Yorkshire Farmers Urged To Attend Protect and Grow Advice Seminars

14th March 2016

Land and property consultancy George F. White is hosting a range of advice seminars across North Yorkshire that are aimed to provide guidance and support to the region’s rural community.

In partnership with McClarrons Insurance, the seminars are designed to help farmers and rural businesses understand how they can protect and grow their business. Key issues discussed will include important funding and subsidy updates, litigation risks and growth and diversification opportunities.

The guest speaker is leading corporate defence lawyer Gary Gallen. His talk will focus on the key regulatory and criminal risks farmers face, examples of common claims against rural businesses and the protection available.

Tom Mason, Partner at George F. White, said: “The seminars will be extremely useful to farmers and landowners who can find out more about rural grants, receive an update on the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) and learn how they can diversify their business to positively impact profit margins through Combined Heating and Power. There’s also a specific focus on insurance issues, the vital role this plays in business operation and what farmers need to know and why. We are looking forward to welcoming Yorkshire’s rural community and answering any questions or queries they may have.”

The seminars will take place at 6.30pm at the following venues on the specified dates:

  • 31st March Golden Lion Hotel, Northallerton DL7 8PP
  • 6th April Tennants Auctioneers, Leyburn DL8 5SG
  • 7th April Tickton Grange Hotel, Beverley HU17 9SH
  • 11th April The Feathers Hotel, Helmsley YO62 5BH
  • 12th April Malton & Norton Golf Club, Malton YO17 9QE
  • 13th April Coniston Hotel, Skipton BD23 4EA
  • 14th April Mid Yorkshire Golf Club, Pontefract WF8 3BP

Steven Swift, Head of Development at McClarrons Insurance, added: “We understand that the fundamental aim of farmers is to protect their most prized commodities such as land, livestock and machinery. As such, we want to provide useful advice to rural businesses on how they can best protect their assets and how this can be done in a way that’s tailored to the needs of each individual rural business. Hopefully, farmers will leave the seminar with a lot more knowledge and awareness of these important issues and understand who they can turn to for assistance on such matters.”
