MEINIR RETAINS FUW AWARD.
The Farmers' Union of Wales' Carmarthenshire county executive officer Meinir Bartlett has retained the union's Owen Slaymaker Award given annually to the county branch that has best promoted the interests of members and the union.
Mr Slaymaker was the FUW's Carmarthenshire county secretary from 1970-90 and county executive officer from 1990-91 when he died in office.
The award in his memory recognises the county executive officer who uses every opportunity to effectively raise the union's profile through organised events, functions and meetings.
Presenting the award to Mrs Bartlett at the union's recent annual general meeting, deputy president Glyn Roberts said:
"Our agricultural policy, public relations and administration departments assess the winner on the basis of what’s been achieved during the year and who has gone that extra mile on behalf of members.
"They look for quality of policy consultation responses, press contributions and promoting the union and its activities at every opportunity, whilst taking good care of members’ needs."
Mrs Bartlett joined the FUW 16 years ago after working for the Milk Marketing Board and Milk Marque.
During her time with Milk Marque she was in charge of the department dealing with the introduction of the automotive data collection department responsible for recording the number of litres collected and quality results from individual farms.
