Farmwatch is an initiative led by members of the Agricultural sector in the Test Valley area. Its members and representatives of the local constabulary meet three times a year to discuss the topics of Security and Welfare in the region.
Des Close, the Agricultural Manager at WP Group, recently attended a Farmwatch meeting as a guest speaker and was impressed with its smooth lines of operation and administration. He also championed the exchange of information which included the impressive ALERT system. Ross Cowan & Chris Ford of Southern Tank Services Ltd from Swallowcliffe, Salisbury provided those at the meeting with details of the tank security equipment they can supply or install if required.
Des Close commented “I left the meeting with the positive belief that the way forward is to remove the opportunities from the opportunists who prey on the rural community.”
