Message from the chairman

I would like to call all foot trimmers past and present to attend this year’s AGM which is being held on Friday 10th & Saturday 11th April at Reaseheath College Nantwich.

Accommodation will be at the college and is to be booked through the NACFT so if you need a room for the night please ring me to book on 077330 65569.

The meeting will start promptly at 1pm on the Friday.

The evening social will be held in the student bar and I am sure there will be a trip into town to sample the local night life .

Saturday will start at 10am, we will have trade stands and crushes with cows being trimmed.

If you wish to bring a crush whatever make or model and you want to trim, as long as you are a fully licensed member and insured please let myself or any of the committee know and we can book you in.

There will be demonstrations on cadaver feet to show pedal bone rotation as a result of trimming. For biosecurity reasons will be away from the dairy.

So please if you have any views you would like to share, or questions you would like answered, come along to the AGM and let’s talk.
