A life-long champion of farming and agriculture in Wales, who works for JCP Solicitors, has been recognised by the Royal Agricultural Societies.

Malcolm Thomas MBE, from Llangynog, Carmarthen, has been made an Associate of the Royal Agricultural Societies for his contribution to agricultural and rural industries in Wales, alongside three other recipients.

The prestigious Associateship comes from the Welsh National Panel and the National Moderators Panel for the Council of Awards of Royal Agricultural Societies.

A farmer’s son, Malcolm is now a Rural Client Manager at JCP, having joined the firm in 2011.

He has worked in many high profile and influential roles for the Welsh Office, NFU England and Wales, NFU Cymru and the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI), amongst others, lending his expertise to almost every aspect of the agricultural industry in Wales. He is also a Life Member of the Young Farmers' Club movement.

JCP Director and Head of Rural Practice, Rory Hutchings said he was delighted to see Malcolm being recognised in the industry to which he gives so much.

“This latest recognition for Malcolm’s work in farming and agriculture in Wales is well-deserved. Malcolm has worked in the agricultural industry himself for many years and furthering the interests of those in agriculture is very much a vocation for him.

Malcolm was made an MBE in the Queen’s 2012 New Year Honours List for his services to agriculture.

The new Associates will be presented with their awards at the 2015 Royal Welsh Show next week.
