• Brachers has shown ongoing support to the agriculture sector through another year of sponsoring the Weald of Kent Ploughing Match.

    Brachers has been a keen supporter of the Weald of Kent Ploughing Match for many years. The 2022 event will take place on Saturday 17 September at New Barn Farm in Hawkenbury, Kent.

    The vibrant and growing event is well supported by the local agricultural and allied trades. Alongside the ploughing competitions, events and activities at this year’s show will include clay pigeon shooting, a gymkhana and local farmers’ market. Members of the Brachers Agriculture and Rural team will also be available to speak to clients and visitors in the Brachers marquee throughout the day.

    The Weald of Kent Ploughing Match Association (WKPMA) was established in 1947 and the first match took place in 1946, immediately after World War II, to raise money for the Red Cross. Charitable aims are still at the heart of the event, with the WKMPA contributing to a variety of local and national charities each year.

    Sarah Gaines, the firm’s head of the Agriculture and Rural team, commented: “I am delighted to confirm that Brachers will be attending the Weald of Kent Ploughing Match again this September. The event is a staple of the region’s rural calendar and I look forward to using it as an opportunity to catch up with many of our agricultural clients and friends of Brachers.”

    Brachers’ sponsorship of the Weald of Kent Ploughing Match is the latest agricultural event the firm has supported in recent months. In March Brachers exhibited at Farm Expo, with Agriculture and Rural team member Sarah Mannooch delivering a speaking session at the event focussing on succession planning in farming businesses. Brachers is also a longstanding supporter of the Kent County Show, which attracted thousands of visitors to the Kent Showground in Detling last week.
