VOTING is now open for the 2013 Nature of Farming Award overall UK winner.
And the Lord Mayor of Armagh City and District, Robert Turner is calling upon the public to show their support for regional champion Tim McClelland, from Tandragee.
Lord Mayor Turner said: “Tim, who is a close neighbour of mine, is an excellent example of how farmers can make homes for nature on their land.
“He really deserves to win this year’s Nature of Farming Award, but he needs the public’s help to beat seven other farmers from across the UK. I hope people will recognise all the good work he is doing for nature and vote for him to win the 2013 title.”
Votes can be cast at www.rspb.org.uk/farmvote until August 31.
