LOCAL farming business Rushmoor Country Park recently banked the benefits of help from Barclays Bank’s Louth business manager, Janice Whitham.

She has decided to pledge some time in discovering first hand her client’s needs and the range of issues facing local farming businesses.

Janice swapped her uniform for wellies to join Maureen Clarke, who runs the children’s farm in North Cockerington, near Louth to help with the day to day running of the business.

Duties for the day included mucking out and feeding the animals and helping with the bird of prey demonstration.

Janice said: “As champions of business, Barclays is committed to supporting the local economy and I am committed to finding out more about my client’s business to help them achieve their ambitions.

“The more we know and learn about our customers the better, enabling us to provide the right levels of support and advice when required.”

Maureen Clarke from Rushmoor Park continued to say: “During these difficult times it is essential that you maintain close links with your banks and ensure they have a genuine understanding of your business.

“This initiative has been a great success and allows my bank to fully understand my business and the issues I face on a day-to-day basis.”
