Young farmer to represent Lancashire at Lord Mayor's Show

A young farmer from Lancashire has landed a starring role in November's historic Lord Mayor's Show pageant.

Hannah Binns is 20 and lives on a farm near Clitheroe, where her father Thomas keeps 2,500 sheep on 1,600 acres.

She is one of eight young farmers chosen by the NFU following a nationwide search. Her charity parachute jump from 15,000 ft, raising money for RABI, caught the attention of the judges.

For the 802nd Lord Mayor’s Show she will be joined by 7,500 participants, 200 horses, 140 floats, 20 marching bands, dancers, performers and armed forces.

Hannah said: “I'm excited to work alongside the other seven young farmers in promoting our hardworking but rewarding industry. This experience is once in a lifetime and I cannot wait to grasp the opportunity to engage the general public in the #backbritishfarming message.”
