More than 70 attended enjoying a three-course meal and a very entertaining talk by John covering his career and belief that the government and farming industry need a comprehensive plan to counter climate change and events like this year’s flooding. They were also able to purchase signed copies of the new John Craven’s Countryfile Handbook.
