A WARM WELCOME TO CHARLES MOORE OUR SOCIETY PRESIDENT FOR 2016

Charles was born in Hastings in East Sussex and brought up on a small mixedfarm there. He continues to reside with his wife in the county, has adult twins and is a keen supporter of country sports.

Former editor of the Daily Telegraph, the Sunday Telegraph and The Spectator, Charles said, “I am honoured to be the new President of the Society. It is a great institution of farming and country life in the region. This is a time when the achievements and innovations of our agriculture need to be better understood.”

He continues to write a weekly column for the Daily Telegraph and The Spectator and he is the authorised biographer of Margaret Thatcher, the first volume of which appeared in April 2013 shortly after she died.

We are looking forward to welcoming Charles to our shows and various educational events throughout the year and he said, “Events such as the South of England Show provide some of the best opportunities in the South for all these good things to be appreciated and enjoyed.”
