David guided us and supported us through a difficult period when we moved to another bank, and set out to buy a neighbouring farm at the same time. Our eventual success in that purchase is largely due to the help and constructive advice that David gave us in obtaining, and structuring, our borrowing. He helped and supported us in shaping plans for other projects that would make our farming business more sustainable and resilient. We are very grateful that David brought his help and expertise to us at a critical time in the development of our farming business.
David & I have worked together for many years on behalf of our mutual clients. It is always a pleasure to work with David as he works hard to provide solutions to the tasks in hand, he is a lateral thinker & never loses sight of what is in the best interests of his clients.
David was our bank manager for around 12 years. His approach and enthusiasm has enabled us to expand and diversify our business extensively. When we purchased another farm David played an essential role in helping us to secure a loan and structure our debt accordingly, often going out of his way to help. Our business continues to work with David Hughes Rural Business Solutions Ltd.

Thank you, for working with the company over the last 9 months to help us get our new business off the ground. You have helped the company obtain a Low Carbon Fund Loan and introduced a second director, without which the business would not have progressed to starting the spreading of liquid digestate.
Thank you for your assistance in sorting out our business rebanking exercise, you introduced us to a new Bank manager and then liaised with our Accountant and Solicitor to ensure that the change of Banks went as smoothly as possible.
With your help the structure of our business finances are much more appropriate with a 20 year loan and an Overdraft at a competitive interest rate.
Thank you for arranging the Asset Finance to enable our company to acquire more pig arcs and feeders etc for our outdoor pig farms. The unusual structure was very tax effective which helped enormously.
Thank you for your help in putting together a session on Business Planning in our Future Managers Course. From the feedback we obtained I know that the students enjoyed your session and gleaned a lot from discussions about your experience as an Agricultural Bank manager. As always it was a pleasure to work with you and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
Excellent breakfast talk by Bidwells. Appears that the potential for a new crop of houses is good in certain areas.
