  • This event has passed.

On Friday 15th November, over 100 of NextGen’s members, partners and supporters gathered at Lyde Arundel in Hereford for a fantastic evening of drinks, food, an auction and dancing. It was a great turn out for our first black tie event as NextGen Fruit Group with a mix of new and old faces networking and having fun.

Firstly, we would like to say a huge thank you to our keynote speaker, Angus Davison, Founder and Chairman of Haygrove with his message ‘Challenge the measurement of’ ‘business’ not only to focus on profit but people and the planet too. In horticulture we are on the front line of working with nature and a full cross section of people so get it without question and should lead’.

Secondly, to Half Penny Green Estate, Biddenden Vineyard and Thatchers Cider for generously donating some of their wonderful British wine. Field 2 Fork Catering for their delicious canapes and dinner. And finally some amazing auction and raffle prizes and a competitive game of heads and tales before dancing the night away to music from The Shadow Monkeys.

It was a fantastic night of youth, positivity and energy and we will be hosting another ball in 2020 so watch this space!
