SEMINAR 2014: Gordon Cumming Bursaries
Gordon Cumming, who is very sadly missed, was one of the founder members who set up the Seminar. His family very generously offered all Gordon’s equipment to the Society and some of the proceeds are being used to offer three full bursaries in his memory for next year’s Seminar.
The Seminar will be held at the Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester from the 26th – 28th June 2014. Bursary holders will be expected to assist with the running of the Seminar but will see all the lectures and demonstrations.
Applications should be sent via email or by post to Claire Redfern at 21 Moat Way, Goring-by Sea, West Sussex BN12 4DR.
