Argyll & the Islands

Lucy Sumsion

Lucy Sumsion

As Regional Manager for Argyll and the Islands, my role is a diverse one, and I am primarily here to support and assist members within this region.

I work with your regional representatives, and I also represent NFU Scotland locally on several stakeholder groups.

With the uncertainty over the implications of the EU referendum vote, and how the various negotiations are going to proceed, 2017 continues to be a challenging and busy year. Building partnerships and engagement with other stakeholders will be vital to ensure that we get the right deal for Scottish agriculture. This will need to deliver support for active crofters and farmers, as well as ensuring access to markets and labour and recognising the wide range of public benefits that farming and crofting delivers. NFU Scotland is here to support its members in any way that it can. The local branches and group secretaries are a good way of engaging with the development of policy and to raise issues. I would encourage you to support your local branch and let them know your thoughts and ideas. 

John Dickson, your Regional Board Chairman, and the other regional board members, committee representatives, branch chairs and monitors are all here to support members and to represent your interests.

This handbook provides you with all their contact details so please make use of them. As always I am keen to get out and about across the region as much as possible to meet members and help you with any specific issues or concerns that you have.
