AGM Reflects on a tough year, but is optimistic moving forward
The AGM for the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association (RCAA) took place in July, and despite what had been another challenging year, having come out the other side of the pandemic ‘relatively unscathed’, the Association is optimistic that 2022 will be somewhat closer to normal.
During the AGM, the President and President Elect badges were presented. Mr John Willis has been re-elected as President for another year, after his initial election at the Virtual AGM last year. Similarly Mrs Alexandra Bolitho was re-elected as President Elect for a further year.
There was also the election of our new Chairman Sir Ferrers Vyvyan, who has a long and valued history with the Association, and our new Vice Chair Mrs Catherine Mead, the owner of Lynher Dairies. We wish them all the best in the year to come.
We also said a sad goodbye to our outgoing Chairman, Mr Michael Williams, who has supported, along with his wife Sarah, the Association for 25 years. Mr Williams has been a pillar of wisdom and patience over the last quarter-century, and we wish him and Sarah all the best in their future endeavours and very much look forward to seeing them at many Royal Cornwall Shows to come!
We would like to say a big thank you following the presentation of the James and Margaret Eustice Perpetual Challenge Cup. This new trophy will be awarded to the best team of 5 beef animals, at the Royal Cornwall Show, from 2022 onwards.
