Agricultural Society reappoints president

THE South of England Agricultural Society, which funds and supports agricultural education and promotes countryside learning in Kent, East and West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and Berkshire has announced that Elizabeth Buchanan CVO LLD FRAgs will return as the charity’s President. 

Elizabeth was President in 2020, but the pandemic meant working together was very limited, so the charity made the choice to invite her back for 2022.
Former Private Secretary to TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, and previously Press Secretary to Lady Thatcher, she is a non-executive director of D.E.F.R.A., an advisor to Waitrose, Saputo Dairy UK and the McDonald’s UK & Ireland, and sits on the BBC Rural Affairs Committee.  
For 2022, Elizabeth has selected The Prince’s Countryside Fund as the Society’s charity of the year. The charity exists to improve the prospects of family farm businesses and the quality of rural life. The Fund provides more than £1m in grant and initiative funding each year, supporting projects across the UK that help to provide a secure future for the countryside.
