Despite forming little more than a year ago, the Monmouthshire county committee has won the Bryn Davies Bowl.
The bowl is awarded to the ‘individual, organisation, company or club in Wales which makes the greatest contribution to R.A.B.I.’
The Monmouthshire committee organised five major events in 2016 and also designed and sold a farming calendar. This was all in their first year of existence.
Gwilym Richards, chairman of the committee, said: “During the last two years we’ve worked tirelessly as a team to make the county aware of the work of R.A.B.I.
“We held a quiz night, a beetle drive, a Sunday lunch, and a family farm fun day. I think we are doing sterling work by spreading the message of what we do across the county.”
Gwilym also paid tribute to Linda Jones, regional manager for Wales. He added: “Linda is a real asset to R.A.B.I, a true ambassador. She’s put the work of R.A.B.I back on the map in Wales.”
