FARMERS and members of the community enjoyed an annual breakfast event on Sunday, February 25. 

The pre-lambing breakfast, organised by the Exmoor Hill Farming Network (EHFN), bought people together from across Exmoor in support of farming charities. 

More than 150 people tucked into a traditional breakfast at the Winsford Village Hall, despite the wet weather. 

A total of £1,191 was raised at the event and will be split between The Farming Community Network and The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institute. 

Katherine Williams, EHFN Network Manager said: "We care passionately about our farming community’s mental and physical wellbeing.

"Thankfully with the long winter months nearly behind us, and as our farmers approach one of the busiest times of year, we wanted to bring people together from across Exmoor to share mutual support and chat amongst likeminded people. 

"A huge thank you to members of EHFN’s Women in Farming Group Shirley Julian, chief cook and kitchen helpers Judith Fewings, Tracey Speed and Caroline Case who worked so very hard to provide us with the most delicious, cooked breakfast.

"Thank you to all the other helpers for their assistance in making the event such a success. We were absolutely overwhelmed by the support shown for this event and a massive thank you to Mole Valley Farmers, John and Bridget Goscomb for providing the eggs and all other donations that came in prior to the event."

Net year's pre-lambing breakfast will be on Sunday, February 23 2025.
