Happy New Year!

A very Happy New Year! I hope 2022 is a happy, healthy and prosperous one for all.

2022 will be a year where things will remain uncertain for our industry for numerous reasons including COVID, BREXIT and the on-going Agricultural Transition Period. HNR will keep you up-dated as the days and weeks pass and are here to help, advise and discuss the changes coming up. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there is anything you wish to discuss.

I look forward to hearing and seeing as many of you as possible throughout the year.
