Who cares for the far ME r?

laugh and a hog to better health

With comedian John Ryan entertaining us through the evening, our hope is that we will lift the January blues and leave with a little spring in our step.Laughing is a great prescription to help boost our mood, so what better way to get through the difficult month that January can be.Add into the mix a hog roast, a Beeston Brewery pint and a good old yarn, and you could almost have the perfect evening.

But we’ll leave that for you to decide

Farming is not just a job – it’s a way of life. And it therefore comes with its own unique stressors and risks. Working in agriculture and the countryside is usually a good way of life but it is a demanding and stressful occupation. So, it’s not surprising that many people involved with agriculture can feel isolated, depressed or unable to cope as well as normal.The Farming Community Network (FCN) provides pastoral and practical support for farmers and their families. If you are involved with agriculture or another rural business in any way and are feeling low or struggling, or if you are worried about a member of your family, a colleague or a friend, YANA can help. Call our helpline 0300 323 0400 for confidential support or email helpline@yanahelp.org.

Remember, you don’t have to struggle by yourself – good help is available.
