Set-up of Intermediate Depot for North Wales sheep farmers

Wool prices are on the increase and to ensure sheep producers benefit from most efficient collection and delivery service for their wool there will be new arrangements for North Wales farmers during the coming season.

To ensure the highest level of service can be provided to sheep producers, the British Wool Marketing Board has set-up a new Intermediate Depot on the Isle of Anglesey.

There will be no carriage recharge to producers who deliver to this site, or as before, to the BWMB's existing depot at Porthmadog. The new site, at Bwlcyn Farm, Bryngwran, Holyhead will be available to accept deliveries of wool from producers from June to September.

However, both sites - at Bwlcyn and Porthmadog - will only accept wool on specific days, as follows:

Monday – Bwlcyn Farm – 8.30am – 3.30pm

Tuesday – Wool Growers, Porthmadog - 7.30am – 4.30pm

Wednesday – Wool Growers, Porthmadog - 7.30am – 4.30pm

Thursday – Wool Growers, Porthmadog - 7.30am – 4.30pm

Friday – Bwlcyn Farm – 8.30am – 3.30pm

Meirion Jones, Depot Manager at Porthmadog, said the new arrangements would help the Board operate an “effective and efficient system” of wool collection for the benefit of producers.

“But it's important for all producers to contact us to book an appointment prior to delivering their wool.

“For producers who want their wool collected off-farm by one of our approved hauliers, priority for on farm collections will be given to those from areas where an Intermediate Depot isn't easily accessible. Producers are due to receive details in the post shortly”
