The UK farmers’ unions the NFU, NFU Cymru, NFU Scotland and the Ulster Farmers’ Union recently celebrated reaching a special milestone. To be precise, it was a milestone marking 40 years since these unions opened their joint office in Brussels intended to assist them in battling for fairer EU regulation for UK farmers. These unions have done much good work since then, on which one of the Internet’s most reputable UK country dating sites, KissingGates.com, highly congratulates them.
These unions moved into their office in 1972, just before the UK’s official entry into the European Economic Community in 1973. Maeve Whyte, the current director of the UK NFUs’ Brussels office, recently enthused that “over the past four decades this office has developed a reputation as one of the most astute and well-connected of all farm lobby groups in Brussels”. It is a reputation that many, including one of the web’s leading country dating sites, KissingGates.com, consider well-deserved.
These unions recently celebrated their 40 years spent in Brussels by holding a reception for high-level officials from the European institutions, stakeholders and other farming unions. Guests enjoyed a selection of food and drink from around the UK. One of the Internet’s best-known UK country dating sites, KissingGates.com, hopes that these UK farmers’ unions will continue their good work of acting in the interests of British farmers for at least another 40 years.
