WALTER ROWLANDS MEMORIAL AWARD: Richard Walker (right) presents the certificate to Luke Morgan

The latest winner of the Farmers’ Union of Wales Glamorganshire county branch’s Walter Rowlands memorial award is Luke Morgan of Groes Farm, Southerndown, currently studying agricultural mechanisation at Wiltshire College.

Luke, who has already received a merit on the agricultural course at Bridgend College, has been a member of Wick YFC for six years.

He said he will use the bursary towards funding additional courses such as welding and attending study tours to demonstration farms, workshops and factories.

FUW Glamorganshire county chairman Richard Walker presented the award and said Luke is a well deserving recipient. “We wish him all the very best with his studies and future plans.

“It is very encouraging to see such enthusiasm from the younger generation towards the agricultural industry and the union is keen to continue supporting promising young farmers through this award.”

The award, in memory of FUW county secretary Walter G. Rowlands, who died in service in 1986, is made to an agricultural student in Glamorganshire after careful consideration by the union’s county executive committee
