An 18-year-old Bedale girl has been chosen as the first CLA Charitable Trust Scholar.

Katie Poulter, a student at Harper Adams University College, will receive a grant equating to £3,000 a year as she studies for her degree in Rural Enterprise and Land Management.

Katie impressed judges with her application and experience at George F White Rural Surveyors. She said: “The CLA Scholarship means everything to me and I’m thrilled at being awarded this prestigious accolade.”
