National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

27 February 2019

YFC members have been officially appointed to the new Vision:2023 working group to help shape NFYFC’s new five-year plan. 

The group, made up of 10 people, will seek input from the wider NFYFC membership, Board members, County and NFYFC staff and external stakeholders and consultants.

Seven of the group are YFC members who applied to be part of the planning process. They include Tom Foulger from Cambridgeshire FYFC, Harry Madin from Cumbria FYFC, Marcus Bailey from Essex FYFC, Rachel Goldie from Yorkshire FYFC, Fay Thomas from Herefordshire FYFC, Polly Baines from Staffordshire FYFC and Laura Rimmer from Lancashire FYFC.

David Heminsley, a Life Vice President from Staffordshire, has been named as a member of the working group too.

Over the coming year, the group will be responsible for drafting a five-year strategic plan for NFYFC and will be seeking input from the wider NFYFC membership. The strategy represents a significant moment in the history of the organisation as it will ensure the Federation is fit for purpose and has clear objectives to achieve as it develops in the future.

The group plans to release the second membership survey soon, which will gather feedback on communications.

Throughout the year there will also be presentations made to NFYFC Council, consultations with members at key events such as Competitions Day and roadshows throughout the counties.

The aim is to present a final report to Council in February 2020.

Harry Madin, a relatively new member of Lamplugh YFC, applied to join the Vision:2023 group as he felt he could bring a fresh perspective. He urged YFC members to get their voices heard.

“Members really need to share their views on the organisation, as without their opinions the group wouldn’t be able to run and positive changes won't be made.”
