Farmers Liaison Worker
Richard has worked at UTASS for far too long. He is getting more and more cantankerous, and the staff are spending an increasing amount of time covering up his inability to manage his diary and IT illiteracy. Having said all that, he does know quite a bit about all the different DEFRA schemes, so we are not planning to pension him off just yet.
P.S. Richard wrote the above himself. The reality is Richard is our “elder statesman”, His knowledge and understanding of farming matters in incomparable We need to resist his retirement as long as we can, as we don’t know how he can be replaced.
