Gwent Young Farmers have had a busy few months with club socials, a county ball, competitions and a pantomime. Oh no they didn’t, oh yes they did!

Events looked a little quiet after Christmas with uncertainties around restrictions.

Now, club and county events are back to normal and members are enjoying a full calendar of activities once again.

Clubs have been meeting to flip pancakes, learn lambing techniques, test their knowledge at friendly quizzes and enjoying a few trips out to local activities, including the driving range and cinema.

County chairman, Abbie Williams from Usk, and vice county chairman Laura Bowyer, also from Usk, have set up an interclub tournament to encourage clubs to socialise while having some light hearted fun.

Challenges have included balloon popping, cracker eating and musical chairs – farmer style. Follow us on social media to find out which club will be notorious over the next few weeks of challenges.

After making a difficult decision to postpone our annual pantomime competition Bedwas Young Farmers Club decided to take on the challenge anyway and recently performed their version of “Aladin” at Bedwas Workmen’s Hall. The event was well supported and the audience thoroughly entertained. They are one of three clubs in Wales who have produced a pantomime this year, meaning they have now qualified to represent Wales at the National finals at the end of April in Coventry. Break a leg Bedwas! County events have also restarted, which has included the annual darts competition at the British Legion and a ball at the Glan Yr Afon. Last weekend teams of public speakers headed to the all Wales final in Builth to compete in the four different categories, everyone performed well under the pressure. Young Farmers is open to anyone aged 10 to 28 up for meeting new people and learning new things. Visit www.gwentyfc.co.uk to find out about your nearest club.
