Furley Page Make Impact At Ploughing Match

A bomb scare failed to spoil the fun as law firm Furley Page welcomed guests to its marquee at the 72nd East Kent Ploughing Match at Grange Farm, Mill Lane, Nonington, near Canterbury.

In addition to its annual laser clay competition, this year Furley Page teamed up with The Hawking Centre from Doddington Place Gardens and guests were entertained by a birds of prey flying display, terrier racing and ‘have a go’ archery. A highly competitive laser clay competition ended with Paul Abbott claiming the highest score.

Unexpected drama was provided when an unexploded mortar shell was discovered during the ploughing match. Police and a bomb disposal team were called and a controlled explosion was carried out.

“We welcomed clients old and new to our stand while also supporting local food and drink companies,” says Senior Associate Ethan Desai from Furley Page’s Agriculture and Rural Business Team. “Produce from The Cheesemakers of Canterbury, Kent Crisps and Westwell Wines all featured in our wonderful buffet lunch.”

Ethan adds: “The East Kent Ploughing Match is a terrific day out suitable for adults and children alike. It has been a popular feature of the region’s agricultural scene for many decades and we were delighted to be involved yet again.”

Furley Page’s expertise in Agriculture and Rural Business is recommended by The Legal 500 while its specialist team is also regarded as a recognised practitioner by Chambers UK, which are both independent guides to the legal profession.
