Dairy farmers and associated businesses are invited to the next Whitby Dairy Discussion Group meeting at The Stables on Monday.

Expert advice from HSBC regional agricultural director Gordon Whitford will be on offer during the meeting.

Mr Whitford, who works across the north and Northern Ireland will be discussing hoe to mitigate risks within a volatile sector.

He has been employed by HSBC for 32 years, 25 of which have been spent in providing finance to the agriculture sector. His previous roles included agriculture manager, managing 250 agricultural accounts in Lancashire and, latterly, his work as a regional director for the North and Northern Ireland.

His current role is to support 23 agriculture managers with all aspects of their work, including development of HSBC profile, credit support, and providing industry knowledge from both the agriculture and agri-food sector.

This is a chance for any dairy farmer to ask any burning questions relating to banking issues. All are welcome to attend the meeting which is due to start at 7.45pm.
