Orkney & Shetland

Ian Wilson

Ian Wilson

I am your regional manager for Orkney and Shetland, a very diverse farming area with a vast array of issues.

We have a great team locally, with Kenny Slater in Kirkwall, Liz Drever, Westray, and Margaret Farquar in Lerwick office as well as the many other secretaries in the other Orkney Isles doing a great deal of work for you as Union members.  Regional Chairman Jim Nicolson and Vice Chairman David Scarth both sit on the NFU Scotland Board of Directors so you can be assured the views of both groups of islands are fully heard nationally.

An example where local pressure has led to a national outcome is the Island Calf Scheme under the new CAP regime and is the ideal example of where local pressure has led to a national outcome for members in the last 12 months.

Over the coming year, members can continue to make use of me, and our local representatives, including group secretaries, for any help, advice or support and I’d ask you to contact us at any time to make your views known.

We have many members and staff who work tirelessly within the region, and continuously contribute to the events and meetings we hold each year, and it would be great to see more people get involved.
