Farmer Hannah is elected to top post
A YOUNG farmer from Rainow has been elected chairlady of the Cheshire Federation of Young Farmers.
Hannah Barton, 25, has been a keen member of Macclesfield Young Farmers for the past 11 years, taking part in everything from the junior quiz, debate, Cheshire Show floats and entertainment competitions to name a few.
She has been Macclesfield’s club chairlady for two years, in 2011 and again in 2013, and was also crowned the Cheshire Dairy Queen in 2010 showing her dedication for Young Farmers throughout the years.
Hannah, whose grandmother Margaret Allaby owns JJJ Heathcotes Butchers Ltd, said: “I am so excited for the year ahead and encouraging all of our 700-plus existing members and more young people aged between 13-30 to get involved from either a farming or non farming background.
“I feel very honoured and privilege to have been elected.
“A huge thank you must go to my mother for her encouragement and support throughout the years, allowing me to take on the role.”
