Ridware YFC news
Unfortunately the bad weather prior to Christmas meant that a couple of meetings had to be cancelled but hopefully they are back on track. There have been visits to Uttoxeter for Ten Pin Bowling in preparation for the County Ten Pin Bowling competition and a Darts and Pool Night is planned in the near future to prepare for the Darts Competition. There will also be a County Public Speaking Day early in February which is when the members of Staffordshire County Federation of Young Farmers Clubs really show what they are made of with Call My Bluff Competitions and Junior and Senior Public Speaking Competitions plus Junior and Senior Ambassadors. Meetings in the future include a Discovery Talk which is the Travel Programme run by the National Federation of YFC enabling members to have the opportunity to travel the world to such places as New Zealand, Canada, Australia, Europe and within the UK. Recent results have been good with Ridware coming 1st – Volleyball, 2nd – Pool, 2nd – Silage Judging, 2nd – County Quiz.
On the social side there will be the New Year Ball and Spring Ball – both great opportunities to put on the glamour and dance off the winter blues.
