A Mull crofter’s half century of dedication to the NFU was recognised with a coveted award.
Ronnie Campbell was presented with the NFU Scotland Argyll and the Islands Stalwart award at his branch meeting last week.
The award is presented to either a member who has given their time and effort to the work of the Union in Argyll and the Islands or someone who has made a significant contribution to agriculture in the area.
Presenting the trophy to Ronnie were regional board chairman John Dickson from Bute, Mull branch chairman Tom Corbett and Mull Regional Board representative Jim Corbett.
Ronnie, who runs a croft at Uisken with Sheila, has given 50 years service to NFU Scotland, continuously representing Mull and crofters on the unions’ Crofting Highlands and Islands Committee and a past vice chairman of the group.
He also represented NFU Scotland on the industry’s liaison group with Caledonian MacBrayne ferries as well as being a Crofting Commission assessor, a special constable and a forestry commission ranger and stalker.
