de Brun Welcomes 'Winter Warmer' initiative for farmers

18 October, 2011 - by Martina Anderson MEP

Sinn Fein MEP Bairbre de Brun has welcomed the initiative taken by NI Water and the Ulster Farmers Union this week to provide information for farmers to prepare them for possible severe weather conditions this coming winter. de Brun said, "Over 60% of NI Water's non-domestic customer base is classified as agricultural, so farms represent a vitally important consumer group, and I welcome NI Water's foresight in taking the opportunity to design and distribute an A4 'Advice for Farmers' flyer, which has been produced in co-operation with the UFU". de Brun concluded, "This follows the distribution of stop valve tags and leaflets offering advice on protecting water pipes in winter,  and is a good example of good cooperation between agencies, to provide common sense advice for our agricultural and rural communities".
