The Christmas meeting hosted by South-East Women in Farming (SEWFI) will take place in the Woodford Dolmen Hotel, Co. Carlow at 7.30pm on Tuesday December 12th.
Progressive Plans for 2018
Speaking with That’s Farming, Aisling Molloy, one of the founders of SEWFI said:
“There will be an opportunity to join the committee for 2018 and all members will be asked for their opinions on the first year of the group and what they would like to learn more about going forward.” Aisling said.
“It's great opportunity to meet farmers in the area, hear about the West Women in Farming trip to Brussels and to get involved with the group for 2018.” Aisling added.
Admission is €8 and the SEWFI committee has extended an open invitation for all to attend.
Tea/Coffee and refreshments will be served.
