Free Farm Advice & Coffee Mornings

Free coffee and advice for farmers in the south-west.

Coffee morning initiative launched to support farming community

Cornish Mutual has launched a new coffee morning initiative as part of a year-long commitment to support rural charity the Farming Community Network (FCN).

The first three of theses events will be held in the week beginning Monday the 18th of April, and will focus on sharing hints and tips on how to make farm business administration easier, and less time consuming.

The coffee mornings are free to attend with participants encouraged to donate to the FCN through a tea and cake stall and a raffle.  Cornish Mutual have pledged to match all funds raised up to £100.

The pressures of farm administration was a specific area of concern that was raised by farmers who attended Cornish Mutual’s health and safety events last year.

fcn

Alan Goddard, Managing Director for Cornish Mutual said: “The FCN is a very important charity which addresses issues which are often not discussed openly in the farming community. People can face a variety of pressures when running a farm, be it financial or personal, it can be a very stressful lifestyle, especially at the moment when we know farmers across the Westcountry are finding it hard.

“The FCN offers practical help and advice to farmers and their families in times of need enabling them to talk through problems and where possible  find solutions. The coffee morning initiative is a great way to raise funds for the FCN and bring people together. We also know that the free advice will be very welcome.”

The first three coffee mornings will take place on:

Mlobbsonday 18 AprilLobbs Farm Shop, Heligan, St Austell. Speakers include Canon Chris Batt, speaking on behalf of the FCN, and Peter Green, accountant and farmer, who will talk about ways to improve how you work on and in your farm business.

Deadline for Grant Applications – Prince’s Countryside Fund

13th April deadline for grants from the Prince’s Countryside Fund

About the Fund

The Prince’s Countryside Fund provides more than £1m in grants each year to projects across the UK. Grants of up to £50,000 are available for innovative projects that will provide a lasting legacy to the individuals and communities they seek to benefit.

Recent Projects

In Grampound, The Hollies Store and Post Office was the only convenience store in the village but it closed after the shopkeeper and postmistress retired.  Faced with the prospect of a six-mile round trip for a pint of milk or newspaper, villagers came together to explore reopening the shop themselves.

The new Grampound Village Store and Coffee Shop, next to the village hall, was made possible with a grant from The Prince’s Countryside Fund, plus more than half of the households in the village signing up to a community share, amassing more than £20,500 in three months. The new store plays an important role as a hub of the community:It provides local jobs and volunteering opportunities, a place for residents to meet and a valuable outlet for local food suppliers.  Read more about recent projects here.
