Christine Broom on the NFU
We joined the NFU when we started farming and their headquarters were on the Mall at Newport and yes, you’ve got the Journal. I’m not sure if they didn’t come out quarterly.
I’ve luckily got Volume 1 of number one, full of adverts, a list of people that had joined since the last one was issued, all about the ploughing grants for grassland and a mine of information really. People used to look forward to having it because it was sort of something to keep you informed with people on the Island, but as I say I’m sure they don’t do them now. I’ve got quite a few of them but that was the original, the very first one of the first volume.
