Lincolnshire Farming Conference cancelled due to Covid-19 20 Jan

A major event in the Lincolnshire agricultural calendar has been cancelled for a second year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Lincolnshire Farming Conference, which was set to make its return on Thursday 10 February 2022 at the Lincolnshire Showground, has been cancelled as a precaution in the light of concerns around the Omicron variant.

Kelly Hewson-Fisher, chair of the Lincolnshire Farming Conference said: “We are sad to announce the cancellation of the 2022 event however, the safety of our community is extremely important to us, and we have to prioritise that by taking the right action.

“The conference is a key fixture for Lincolnshire’s agricultural community, with this decision to cancel being intended to keep them safe and allow us to deliver a first-rate event with greater certainty in the future.

“We look forward to welcoming the Lincolnshire Farming Conference back fully on 9 February 2023, when key industry speakers will focus on the theme of ‘Healthy Soils, Healthy Minds’.”

The Lincolnshire Showground has confirmed that anyone who had already booked a place to attend the Lincolnshire Farming Conference on Thursday 10 February 2022 will be issued a full refund via Eventbrite.

An array of leading national and regional speakers were due to speak at the conference, to discuss the confirmed theme of 2022: healthy soil, healthy minds.

Speakers who had confirmed for the cancelled 2022 event included Paul Davey, Heather Wildman, George Sly, Will Evans, and Caroline Drummond MBE. Secured sponsors included Shakespeare Martineau, Brown & Co & JH Walter, University of Lincoln, Woldmarsh, Streets Chartered Accountants, Househam Sprayers, Anglian Water, Omex, Marsh and CLAAS.
