In the aftermath of foot and mouth in the early 2000’s Cathy Meredith was a key figure in the significant regeneration of the county. The development of the Rural Hub network in the West Midlands was supported by the RDPE programme and in 2011 Herefordshire Rural Hub was set up as a Community Interest Company. Cathy says “in Herefordshire the Rural Hub would not exist without the support of a committed team of individuals”. However, with Cathy at the helm the Hub has developed into a valuable resource for the farming and rural community in the county.
Due to commitments at home Cathy is planning to retire from her role as Hub Co-ordinator in the New Year. She will remain as a Hub Director and will support a new co-ordinator into the vacated post.
