MEM­BERS of NFU Scot­land are be­ing en­cour­aged to ‘drop in’ to its show stand at this week’s Royal High­land Show to ask ques­tions and seek ad­vice.

Ded­i­cated drop-in ses­sions over three of the four days have been planned to al­low those look­ing to speak about ten­an­cies, dys­lexia or seek ad­vice on land reg­is­tra­tion to dis­cuss their is­sues. The sched­ule is: To­day (Thurs­day June 22) from 10am to 11.30am – Scott Bond, head of vol­un­tary reg­is­tra­tion in the agri­cul­tural and ru­ral sec­tor with Reg­is­ters of Scot­land, will be avail­able to an­swer ques­tions and pro­vide in­for­ma­tion on how to ap­ply for vol­un­tary reg­is­tra­tion and pro­tect land on Scot­land’s land reg­is­ter.

To­mor­row (Fri­day) from 1pm to 4pm – Ten­ancy drop-in surgery with NFU Scot­land’s pol­icy man­ager Gemma Cooper to al­low NFU Scot­land mem­bers who are en­gaged in agri­cul­tural ten­an­cies the op­por­tu­nity to dis­cuss any con­cerns they may have with re­gards to ten­an­cies, to find out the lat­est Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment leg­isla­tive de­vel­op­ments or to dis­cuss wider NFU Scot­land pol­icy in this area.

Sun­day June 25 from 10am to 2pm – Fol­low­ing on from the suc­cess of pre­vi­ous years and or­gan­ised as part of NFU Scot­land’s Farm­ing with Dys­lexia cam­paign, the union has once again teamed up with Dys­lexia Scot­land to offer drop-in ses­sions for mem­bers and those work­ing in the agri­cul­tural in­dus­try to ob­tain ad­vice in con­fi­dence about dys­lexia.

An­drew McCor­nick, NFU Scot­land pres­i­dent, com­mented: ‘With so many per­ti­nent is­sues af­fect­ing farm­ers and crofters, we’ve teamed up with var­i­ous or­gan­i­sa­tions to give mem­bers the op­por­tu­nity through ded­i­cated surg­eries to speak in con­fi­dence and gain ad­vice about ten­an­cies, land reg­is­tra­tion and dys­lexia.
