Time is running out for nominations for the Idris Davies Memorial Trust Award, which rewards those who have made an outstanding contribution to agriculture in Pembrokeshire.

The Idris Davies Memorial Trust Award was established in 1982 and the winner will receive a cash award together with a perpetual trophy which will be presented at Pembrokeshire County Show.

Mansel Raymond, chairman of the award’s Management Committee said: “This prestigious award is a great way to recognise those individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to agriculture in Pembrokeshire.

"Potential award winners could be involved in a variety of activities that play an important role in agriculture and the rural community, for example, organising traditional community events such as local shows, to promoting food, farming and rural life to the wider community.”

2017 winner

Last year, agri-food boss Huw Thomas was named as the winner of the 2017 Idris Davies Memorial Award.

Thomas has a wide-ranging knowledge of the food supply chain ranging from primary agriculture, processing and dealing with major retailers.

He has worked in farming, research and government and is the managing director of the successful fresh produce business, Puffin Produce, based in Pembrokeshire.
