Be a road safety champion at Farmers Weekly HQ

Farmers Weekly has teamed up with the NFYFC to host a road safety training course for Young Farmers at our offices in Surrey.

Up to 25 young farmers can attend the free session on Friday 17 May at Farmers Weekly‘s head office in central Sutton. The one-day course will be run by road safety charity Brake, and is part of NFYFC’s Drive It Home campaign – a nationwide scheme to reduce the number of incidents involving young drivers.

Drive it Home campaign logo“These courses are so important to our Drive It Home campaign and will help to change attitudes to driving,” said NFYFC’s national chairman Milly Wastie. “I have been on the course and it has definitely changed my attitude when I’m behind the wheel. By the end of the session our members will be equipped with the knowledge and materials to take back to their clubs and communities to teach their own courses.”

After the session, attendees will also be given a short tour of the Farmers Weekly offices – a chance to go behind the scenes of Farmers Weekly and meet some familiar faces from the Livestock, Arable, Machinery, Business and Farmlife sections. Editor Jane King will also drop in to meet the group and answer any questions.

Thanks to funding by NFU Mutual and the Rural Youth Trust places on the course are free. To book your place email Christina.evans@nfyfc.org.uk or call 02476 857 227
