Double Cause for Celebration for Farming Couple


Andrew and Milly at an R.A.B.I. event earlier this year.

R.A.B.I. regional manager Milly Wastie had cause for double celebration when her future husband presented a cheque for £1,600 to support the charity.

Northamptonshire farmer Andrew Fyfe gave the donation to Milly in September to help the charity’s work in providing welfare grants for farming people in financial difficulty.

The money was raised at Rugby Primestock Society’s 2013 Christmas show and dinner – the society’s fortieth – of which Andrew was chairman.

Milly said: “It’s wonderful to have such strong support from Rugby Primestock Society. We’re incredibly grateful for their generous donation.”

Milly and Andrew plan to marry next year!

80 years of farming in one evening

Eathorpe village hall near Leamington Spa, was filled to capacity on 30 April for a talk by local history expert, Graham Robson. The speaker gave a comprehensive account of the changes he had witnessed in farming in the local area over his and his father’s lifetime, including evolving farming methods and machinery. The night was very informative and included a wonderful buffet provided by R.A.B.I committee member Rosie Reeve and helpers.  The evening, including a raffle, raised over £1,000.


Admington horse ride

A charity horse ride at Admington in Warwickshire has raised over £900 for R.A.B.I.  The nine mile cross country course, taking in the wonderful Warwickshire countryside, was organised by Sue and Tony Cooke and officiated by volunteers from the village. 240 horses and riders entered the ride which took place on 11 May.
