THE Isle of Wight Livestock Society has disbanded after 30 years.

The society, which had around 25 members, presented its remaining funds — almost £900 — to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institute (RABI).

The donation will be used to support farmers in need nationally.

Anna Reed, of the Isle of Wight Livestock Society, said the group had disbanded due to an ageing membership and a lack of new, younger members.
