On Wednesday the 20th of September 2023, our Rural, Agency, Lettings, Telecoms and Planning Professionals attended Laughton Ploughing Match.
The annual agricultural event was held on South Farm in Rodmell, Lewes. Despite the strong winds and occasional shower of rain, Laughton Ploughing Match was busy with visitors and local farmers.
The day was full of activities for all to enjoy, from ploughing and heavy horse displays to tractor rides and fruit and vegetable competitions.
Our stand was well attended by landowners, farmers, and contractors from across the South East. Many of them were looking to find out about the wide range of services Batcheller Monkhouse provides. It was a terrific opportunity for those working in the agricultural industry to get together and network.
We were delighted to once again sponsor the Education Section which welcomed pupils from Western Road Primary School in Lewes. The aim of this was to teach the younger generation about farming, where their food comes from and how the countryside needs to be looked after.
Our staff enjoyed discussing the latest rural grants and legislation with their clients over some locally sourced pork pie and delicious Harvey’s Brewery beer. We held a ‘Can you name the crop?’ competition which seemed popular with children and adults alike.
Our expert team had a brilliant day seeing both familiar and new faces from the surrounding villages. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly teams who would be more than happy to help.
