Trevor Richards, a sheep and arable farmer from Ashford, Kent, has been appointed as British Wool’s chairman, effective April 1, 2018. British Wool is a non-profit making organisation, returning to producers the market price for their wool, less its own costs. Headquartered in Bradford, it has regional offices in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

Trevor, a third generation farmer, is an active member of his local farming community, currently chairman of the Ashford Cattle Market Company, and previously, chairman of the Romney Sheep Breeder’s society. He manages the family farm, Lacton Manor, in partnership with his wife, Jane, running a flock of 400 breeding ewes including Romney’s and Suffolk-cross Mules.

Trevor said, “I’m delighted to be elected as chairman. My father was a British Wool board member, and I’m very proud to continue the tradition. It’s an exciting time for British Wool, and I am looking forward to continuing the implementation of our new strategy, which is designed to promote the benefits of British wool at all levels of the supply chain, particularly targeting consumers.” (GK)
