November 28, 2015 @ 10:30 am - 6:00 pm


We plan to hold the SWAG AGM on Saturday the 28th of November 2015 and would ask that you make a note in your diary and if you can attend, we would love to see you.
The venue this year will be The Hankridge Arms (www.thehankridgearms.com ) which is just off Junction 25 of the M5 on the eastern edge of Taunton.
The itinerary is as follows:
1030 – 1100hrs Arrivals (Tea and coffee available)
1100 – 1145hrs The AGM
1145 – 1300hrs Guest Speaker – Simon Haley, ‘ The Value of Social Media for the Rural Industry’.
Simon wrote a thesis for his MSc in 2013 on the topic of ‘The value of social media for the rural industry’ and has delivered all DEFRA subsidised social media training for the rural sector since 2013.
Simon is the co-founder of AgriChatUK, an online discussion forum on twitter with over 17,000 followers. He also started FarmersOfTheUK, also on Twitter, with 15,000 followers.
Simon has kindly given his time to talk to us. On a personal note I have heard Simon talk on this subject and can vouch that it is a very interesting subject that could change a few minds around the subject of social media.
1300hrs – 1400hrs Lunch (details to follow)
1400hrs onwards general chat followed by drifting homeward
The cost will be £10 per person which will cover all refreshments including lunch and the Guest Speaker.
We hope to see as many of you there as possible.
Thank you
The SWAG committee.
