Date set for FUW Caernarfon AGM

The Farmers' Union of Wales' Caernarfon county branch will stage its annual general meeting at Woodlands Hall Hotel, Edern, near Nefyn, on Friday, November 27 at 7.30pm in partnership with HSBC Bank.

Guest speakers will be FUW president Gareth Vaughan, Caernarfon MP Hywel Williams, Bangor University's Prof Deri Tomos who has achieved an international reputation in the field of plant physiology, and Gerald Miles, an organic farmer from North Pembrokeshire who has campaigned tirelessly against the use of GMOs for many years.

Topic of the evening will be how to ensure a sufficient supply of food in the future and a debate on whether our politicians should allow the use of GMOs.

FUW's county executive officer Gwynedd Watkin said: "All members are welcome, and with a wealth of experience among our four guest speakers, it promises to be an interesting and informative evening.

"Following the speakers' addresses there will be a question and answer session, where members will have the opportunity to contribute to the debate."
