A NEW president has been appointed by Lothersdale Young Farmers’ Club.
Craven farmer David Airey, who farms 1,000 sheep on upland and heathlands in Sutton-in-Craven, close to the county borders of North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and Lancashire, has taken up the position after the retirement of Cathie Cromarty. Cathie has held the position of president for many years and will stay on the club’s advisory team.
David has held many roles in the club over the years from member to leader, so his knowledge will be a valuable asset. The club, which is open to anybody aged from ten to 26, meets every Monday night
David took up the role of president at the club’s AGM, with other appointments being Oliver Barraclough as chairman and Alex Fryer as club secretary.
Anybody interested in joining can find the club on Facebook or call 07809744790. All are welcome; there is no requirement to be a farmer or to have any farming roots to be able to join.
