    Anthony Albert Bentley, of Newport, has been awarded long service medals by the Shropshire and West Midlands Agricultural Society at the Shropshire and West Midlands Show, staged in Shrewsbury, and by the Royal Agricultural Society of England, at The Royal Agricultural Show, at Stoneleigh, Warwickshire.

    The 61-year-old has worked at the Newport-based university college for 47 years, beginning on the university farm, before moving into the specialist poultry unit, and eventually becoming a porter.

    He described receiving the medals as the highlight of a long and enjoyable career. Tony has carried on a family tradition of working at Harper Adams: his great grandfather began work at the university in 1908, followed by Tony’s grandfather, and both parents.
