A DISPERSAL sale is to remeber a farmer on the Powys-Shropshire border who died two years ago.

Auctioneers Halls will be donating part of a commission from the sale to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI) next month.

Andrew Morris, son of Laurence and Phyllis Morris, owners of Mount Farm, Haimwood, Llandrinio, who died two years ago.

The Morris family has been a loyal customer of Halls for more than 50 years and haulier Andrew was a very popular figure at Shrewsbury Auction Centre where he delivered to and transported livestock from the market.


Jonny Dymond, Halls’ senior auctioneer and Shrewsbury Auction Centre manager explained the decision.

He said: "Andrew was a very well known local haulier who was at the market every week and it came a big shock to everyone when he died.
