Farming background

Trained as a City and Guilds level 2 qualified agricultural service engineer, served with 3 dealerships in Shropshire to gain experience on different kinds of machinery over a 6 year period. Alongside this I've used my holidays to work on local arable farms to boost operational credentials. And as said above work on stock farms as teenager. This last year I have had 2 employers working on groundwork and civil engineering - reason for leaving, too far to travel and had to get another job closer to home. And also working for a small groundwork company in the Shropshire area. Currently working on large arable farm with other enterprises in Norfolk.


I'm a keen countryman, I spend as much time as practical possible training my spaniel pup. Obviously alongside that I'm very much into shooting sports, and enjoy a night out with the local keeper foxing (it's a damn sight cheaper than drinking)
