Last chance to take part in law firm’s major poll on issues that affect the region’s rural community


FARMERS and landowners have a final chance to have their say on agricultural issues across the region at this year’s Midlands Machinery Show.

Leading regional law firm, Wilkin Chapman solicitors has already seen more than 200 people take part in its Future Farms Poll, which has been running during the spring and summer.

The Poll asks the rural community to identify its top priorities over the next five years – selecting from agricultural policy, succession planning, diversification and environmental and disease.

Its results are being collated to better inform the Wilkin Chapman agricultural team as it assists in shaping future priorities for the firm – while also passing the results onto colleagues at the East Midlands branch of the NFU, of which it is a panel member.

To date the poll has been conducted at Cereals, the Lincolnshire Show and the Driffield Show, with more than 200 people taking part. Results so far show how 41 per cent of those polled cite agricultural policy being their main priority, with 26 per cent saying succession. Meanwhile 20 per cent identified diversification as their main issue with the remaining 13 per cent saying environmental and disease.

 
Partner and Head of Agriculture at Wilkin Chapman, Catherine Harris encouraged those attending the Midlands Machinery Show to take part.
 
She said: “This year there are many issues of real importance within the farming community and as a result it is so important for our firm to fully understand the future challenges and opportunities for our clients, as well as those of the wider profession.”
 
Wilkin Chapman, which is one of the UK’s Top 200 law firms and the largest in the Lincolnshire region, will have leading members of its Agricultural team at Stand 11 in John Crocker Hall, where you can take part in the poll – with all who vote entered in a draw to win a gin hamper. Legal experts will also be there to chat with visitors about any legal issues or answer any questions.
 


Wilkin Chapman is more than just a law firm; it is there for you, for business, for life.
