Vehicle and Transportation Workshops Come to Argyll in June

An agricultural vehicles and transportation workshop is being held in Argyll in June encouraging farmers and crofters to get up to speed on legislation.

Run by NFU Scotland, and hosted in conjunction with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency and Police Scotland, the half day workshops will cover a range of issues.

This event follows other successful days held across the country over the last 12 months.

Farmers, landowners, and their employees will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn about the latest regulations relevant to them.

The event will take place on Thursday 11 June at Killinochonoch Farm, Kilmichael Glassary, by Lochgilphead courtesy of Bruce Dixon.

There will be a session in the morning and the afternoon with lunch provided in between. Attendees can choose which session to come along to.

The workshop will be undercover, but warm, outdoor clothing is recommended. It is free to NFU Scotland members, but there is a charge of £50 to non-members. Booking is essential so call 0131 472 4000 to register your attendance.

Lucy Sumsion, Regional Manager for NFU Scotland, commented: “Following the success of previous workshops organised by the Union in other regions of Scotland we are pleased to be hosting one in Argyll on 11 June to give members, and non-members a chance to ask questions and be brought up to speed on important transportation and vehicle legislation that may be of relevance to them and their employees.

“Vehicle legislation is complex topic and can cause confusion amongst farmers and those that use agricultural vehicles. Not everyone always complies with the law, some unknowingly, and these workshops will give them the skills and knowledge to comply.

“We continuously work with the DVSA and Police Scotland, and it is great that once again we have both organisations on board.

“Space will be limited, so members are urged to contact NFU Scotland as soon as possible to book their place.”
