Get out and about with Ridware YFC

Published 8 August 2011

Ridware YFC have had an exciting and diverse couple of months starting with building a raft in order to take part in the County Raft Race on the River Dove. A Curry Night was held at the Red Lion Inn at Newborough and also a very interesting and informative tour was taken round Freedom Brewery at Abbots Bromley. The next event was a Royal Visit. Princess Anne visited the County Office in Staffordshire and each club within Staffordshire was invited to demonstrate one of their skills. These ranged from flower arranging to butchery to stock judging to Tug of War. Ridware’s demonstration was their club display and cattle preparation and the Princess showed a real interest in all that she was shown. Each member felt privileged to have had the opportunity to chat to the Princess Royal and it was an excellent day for Staffordshire Young Farmers.

Details of next month’s meetings are as follows:

Wed 21st September Annual General Meeting 8pm at The Meynell Inn, Hoar Cross
Friday 17th September – County Disco – “Hookers and Haymakers” Ivy House Farm, Acton Trussell, ST17 0RE
