The first of this season’s free Updating Events took place at Bourne in Lincolnshire at the offices of Boothman Agriculture and was hosted by Progreen.
There was a good attendance and delegates were updated on a range of topical issues. Presentations included those of Nigel Chadwick from the Health and Safety Executive’s Chemicals Regulation Division, Peter Corbett from BASIS Registration and John Moverley, independent chair of the Forum.
There was also time for networking and questions and attendees were very positive about the value of the event.
