CAP reform road show arrives at Carfraemill

Farmers in the Borders will get the chance to find out about vital European proposals to reform the Common Agricultural Policy at a meeting to be held at Crafraemill next week.

Senior Scottish Government officials will chair a series of road shows which start on December 6 in Perth and take in 13 venues from Shetland and Skye to Lauder.

The Lauder meeting takes place on December 7 at Carfraemill, at 7.30pm. After officials have outlined the European Commission proposals, and their likely impact on Scotland, there will be a question and answer session.
