​On 15th February, the North East Derry group held their AGM which saw vice-chair Andrew Gardiner being elected to the position of Group Chair.

​NE Derry would like to thank outgoing chair Richard Irwin for his dedication and commitment over the past two years and wish Andrew the very best for his upcoming term.

Following the AGM, UFU policy manager James McCluggage gave an update on the new Stormont assembly and discussed current agricultural issues with the group.

After the discussion James answered a range of questions from members around future support for TB, carbon audits, ammonia planning and dealing with EU law in NI.
