    The 2019 conference will be visiting Chile...

On November 25th 2017 the Under 40s hosted their inaugural ball and auction to celebrate 50 years of the Under 40s Fruit Growers. It was a lovely evening and we had a great turn out and lots of support from members through the years

The Under 40s Committee.

Guests arriving at the Hop Farm Venue in Kent.

A three course seasonal dinner was served.


Then there came the big reveal – where the committee were going to take the conference next, it was announced by Selchuk Kurtev of Certis, a Platinum Sponsor of the Under 40s that they would be heading to Chile next!

The auction was great fun with Will a local auctioneer who ‘extracted’ bids out of a willing audience and raised some much needed funds for the Under 40s!

The evening concluded with some catching up and dancing!
