Sheep farmers who value the role of producer-run organisations, or have ever wondered, or grumbled, about the British Wool Marketing Board’s operation or service, are invited to consider serving as a board member.

The following board members of the British Wool Marketing Board will reach the end of their present term of office in March 2015: Mr Malcolm Corbett, English Northern; Mr Nigel Williams, English Central; Mr Ian Buchanan, Northern Ireland.

Mr Buchanan has offered himself for re-election but Messrs Corbett and Williams are retiring from the board and, therefore, will not be standing for re-election.

The BWMB is now asking for nominations from candidates who live in any of these regions.

To be eligible, candidates must be nominated in writing by at least ten registered wool producers in the relevant regions who will each need to supply their address, authorised signature and registration number.

Nominations should be sent to arrive no later than 6pm on Thursday 29th January 2015, by fax on 01274 652233, by email to or by post to the address below.

No special form of nomination is required, but the BWMB can supply suitable forms, and further information, if necessary. Contact: Mrs J Murphy, British Wool Marketing Board, Wool House, Sidings Close, Canal Road, Bradford, BD2 1AZ.
