Member Survey

We are undertaking a membership wide survey which will provide us with important feedback on our performance as your buying group.

The survey is based upon a 1-5 scale which we can measure for both satisfaction and importance to both you and the membership overall.

From the results we will better understand the areas that we currently do well and are valued but of equal importance, your feedback will identify areas for improvement.

Once we have analysed the results we will publish this in the Woldmarsh World.

All replies will be treated in the strictest confidence with the identity of those who respond known only to the survey co-ordinator, in this case Heather Claridge. Anonymous replies are equally welcome. Please email your responses to h.claridge@woldmarsh.com or return via post by 30th June 2015.

By completing the survey you will be instrumental in helping to shape your organisation and the more responses we receive the better the views of the majority will be represented.

Dispose of your silage wrap for just £25 and help RABI

Harby Agriculture are offering FREE collection of silage wrap as part of a National Waste Amnesty to celebrate its 10th Birthday.

Farmers can register to host a waste hub where silage wrap can be aggregated into whole lorry loads for free collection.

The host farmer must have some clean concrete to tip the silage wrap on and must load the lorry. In return he gets free disposal of his own wrap. The host farmer invites other farming friends or neighbours to use the hub. These guest farmers pay a one off registration fee of £25 from which £5 will go to RABI, they can then bring as much silage wrap as they want.

To organise a hub on your farm please visit www.harby.co.uk  and fill the online form. This offer is open now. The collections will be between 1st June 2015 and 13th July 2015.We want to encourage farmers to do the ‘right thing’ commented Harby Agriculture Managing Director Paul Towns. Its 10 years since the waste legislation was introduced. Farmers are recycling more than ever but a significant percentage is still not recycled. We feel a free one off ‘waste amnesty’ shows Harby’s commitment to UK agriculture and will encourage farmers to increase their recycling rates.  It will also benefit the RABI charity.
