A student from Harper Adams and one from Bishop Burton have been named as the two new columnists in Farmers Weekly’s popular College Calendar series.

Rob Cotton, a second year at Harper in Shropshire and Lizzie Jennings, a first year at the Yorkshire college, will be writing monthly updates on the highs and lows of life as an agricultural student.

Unlike previous College Calendar columnists, however, the pair will also be writing a blog on FWi, providing more regular snippets of news, views, gossip and photos about student life.

You can intereact with them on the blog, leaving comments of your own. See their first contributions at the College Calendar blog.
