Bryan Bristol has stepped down from the Lancashire committee after 36 years of service to the charity. The committee said goodbye at their annual lunch at Ferrari’s Country House in Longridge, which raised £600.
A former farmer, Bryan joined the committee in 1983. He served as the group’s treasurer for 21 years before becoming county president.
Ben Briggs, editor of the Farmers Guardian, was the guest speaker at the lunch, which had 70 people in attendance. Committee chairman Brian Taylor thanked Bryan for his many years of service and presented him with a clock and flowers as gifts from the group of supporters.
Georgina Lamb, North West regional manager, said: “Bryan has been a great asset to the committee and we’re sad to see him go. Things won’t be the same without him!”
