Updating events get off to a flying start

Kate Hopkinsin Industry News

The first of this season's free Updating Events took place at Bourne in Lincolnshire at the offices of Boothman Agriculture and hosted by Progreen.

There was a good attendance and they were updated on a range of topical issues with presentations including those of Nigel Chadwick from the Health and Safety Executive's Chemicals Regulation Division, Peter Corbett from BASIS Registration and John Moverley, Independent Chairman of the Forum. There was also time for networking and questions. Those attending were very positive about the value of the event.

In 2017, the Amenity Forum is holding a series of free Updating Events at locations across the UK. These events are half day in length and focus on short presentations covering current topics delivered by specialists in these areas. Apart from events in each main region of England, there will also be ones in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. They are being held in the period late January to early April.

If you are interested in attending, or know others who might be, you are advised to register your interest now by emailing Kate Hopkins.
