Minister calls on farmers to tidy up before the TT 4 May 2007

Agriculture Minister Phil Gawne has today called on farmers to do all they can to ensure our TT visitors have a great experience at this year’s event, by making sure their farms look their best.

“I am asking all of the Island’s farmers to go the extra mile this year in preparing for our visitors” explained Mr Gawne. “We have a beautiful countryside and it would be a shame if even a few farms looked scruffy in the eyes of our visitors. I know it is a busy time for farmers, but I hope everybody will just pass a critical eye over their farm and tackle any visible eye sores.”

He added “I know how much both the public and our visitors value the effort and pride that our farmers take in looking after the countryside, so this seems an ideal time for farmers to ensure we have done all we can.”
