CW79: Lord Plumb – A farmers life

Lord Henry Plumb has been described as probably the most important person in agriculture of the last one hundred years. Alongside a farming career spanning almost eight decades he served as Vice President and President of the National Farmers’ Union and as the only British President of the European Parliament. In November 2017, aged 92, he retired from the House of Lords. Country Way editor Louise Davis went to meet him on his farm in Warwickshire.

Germinate Leadership brochure

Germinate Leadership is for lay and ordained leaders in rural churches who have already displayed some creative and entrepreneurial flair in ministry and are keen to develop themselves and their skills. Every part of the Germinate Leadership programme is rooted in the opportunities and challenges of ministry in rural contexts and fosters a collaborative, ecumenical approach and a culture of continuing personal and professional development.
