From this Saturday (21st April), the Rural Payments Agency customer service centre will be available at weekends and some public holidays to help those farmers and food producers who have yet to submit their 2012 Single Payment Scheme (SPS) applications. The lines (0845 603 7777) will be open 09:00 hours to 15:00 hours every Saturday until 12th May 2012.
