Local Member of the Welsh Parliament for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, has welcomed news from the Farmers’ Union of Wales that it is preparing for its annual Farmhouse Breakfast week between 18th and 24th January this year but in a changed format.
Normally the FUW arranges breakfasts with local farming families in their homes to discuss matters of concern and interest, and in the past Mr Ramsay has enjoyed attending these events. This year the format has had to change as meeting others round the farmhouse table to enjoy a full farmhouse breakfast is impossible.
Instead, the FUW is encouraging the public to get involved with breakfast week by purchasing locally sourced breakfast ingredients, and sharing photos and videos of themselves with their breakfast through social media, using the hashtag #breakfastweek2021.
Speaking earlier Nick said: “ I was delighted to be notified of this great idea and will certainly be supporting the campaign and will be enjoying our wonderful locally produced breakfast food to help support our local producers here in Monmouthshire.
“ I’m informed that Beavan Family Butchers of Abergavenny is participating in the scheme this year as well as many other businesses across Wales.
“The campaign is further hoping to raise vital funds for the DPJ Foundation by asking consumers to make a small donation alongside their breakfast produce purchase. Anyone wanting to make a direct donation, can do so here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/fuw-breakfast-week"
