Sarah Chase’ 02 joins forces with Britain’s famed Lady Apsley of The Women’s Food and Farming Union (WFU), which has formed a new branch strategically orientated close to the political and media centers of power in London. Apsley is the official WFU London branch spokeswoman.

Chase, head of PR and marketing for RURAL TV, who along with original WFU founders Teresa Wickham and Elizabeth Browning, first conceived the idea of a London Branch commented in a press release, “Many of us in London, myself included, find that we are in an age and an area of disassociation.  While many of us here have ‘country’ backgrounds we see all around us children, women, men and whole families who carry tragic misconceptions about what it means to be rural, to live in the country and to be involved in the farming community.”
