RuralTech - proud sponsors of all six Shropshire Sheep classes at this year's Burwarton Show 

As a Shropshire-based company, we feel it is fitting that we are sponsoring all six Shropshire Sheep classes at this year's Burwarton Show.

The show, which is being held on 1st August 2024, costs in excess of £250,000 to stage.  Our 'Gold Package' of support will help with the cost of rosettes, prize money awarded and the judges' expenses.

Look out for us on the day!

Any time we connect to the Internet we are vulnerable to cyber attacks.  

Individuals and small businesses are prime targets for cybercriminals..  Often they have the least-protected websites, accounts and network systems, making a cyber attack a relatively easy job.

So what precautions can we take to stay safe online?
