Fun, Learning, and Achievement

30 December 2018

Get excited about 2019, as there's a whole lot of YFC to enjoy! 

1. First ever fringe

NFYFC will be hosting its first fringe event at the Oxford Farming Conference this January. The session, entitled – Will there be a next Generation? is being hosted with the Rural Youth Project and will discuss the future for young people in rural communities and working in agriculture. Find out more.

2. Engage in agricultural discussions

Enjoy an agricultural debate in Derbyshire at this two-day event that also involves a farm walk around the Chatsworth Estate. Put the 9-10 Feb in your phone calendar now and book your place here

3. Become a YFC trainer

If an agri debate isn’t your thing, then perhaps an opportunity to become a qualified trainer is more for you? From 9-10 Feb we’ll also be hosting a training weekend at Mount Cook Adventure Centre in Derbyshire for YFC members to become YFC trainers. It means you’ll be able to deliver Curve training in your County and get an ITOL certified qualification to boot. Find out more here.

4. Shear savings

British Wool is offering a saving of more than 50% off its Blue Seal training course in 2019. Book your place before 31 March to make the most of this amazing opportunity.

5. Let me entertain you

The national finals of the Entertainments competition will take place in Leamington Spa on 11 May. Make sure you’re there to cheer on your Area team in the final.

6. Strictly exciting competitions

The popular Ballroom Dancing competition is back on the agenda in 2019 and we’ll be watching our whirling couples in the final on Competitions Day in Staffordshire. We will also be treated to YFC members' vocal talents in our national Choir competition during the same weekend.

7. Going, going, gone

Auctioneering will be a brand new competition in 2019 where competitors need to value and auction three lots. Hammers will be dropping at the national finals in Staffordshire on 6 July.

8. See the world

If you’re tempted by the YFC Travel stories you see on social media, then why not apply for an adventure in 2019? Trips will be advertised in September so start thinking about your dream location now.

9. Save £££s

Take advantage of NFYFC’s affinity deals and make savings on top brands – from magazine subscriptions to clothing and days out. Don’t miss out on exciting offers only available with your YFC card.

10. Look to the future

A new group of YFC members will be making exciting plans in 2019 as part of NFYFC’s Vision:2023 strategic review. This is the next stage in NFYFC’s strategic plan that will help re-shape the Federation.
