National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

29 August 2019

With only FOUR weeks to go until National Young Farmers' Week 2019, NFYFC has created a new toolkit to help YFC members, clubs, counties and supporters get the most out of the week.

The toolkit is packed with graphics, sample social media posts and PR support to help everyone promote YFC and their connections to it.

The members’ pack also includes a section all about hosting new members’ nights with handy tips and advice for making sure yours event goes off without a hitch.

National Young Farmers’ Week, which is sponsored by NatWest for a second year, runs from 30 September until 4 October and aims to promote YFCs on a wider scale and encourage new people to join their local club.

YFCs are encouraged to use the hashtag #NationalYoungFarmersWeek and share their posts on social media – tagging @NFYFC and @NatWest – to help reach more people.

This year the week launches with a #GiveitSomeYFCWelly Day, where YFC members are asked to do just one thing to help promote YFC to a new audience. This could involve wearing your club shirt to work or giving a talk in school about your club.

There’s also the chance for YFCs to win £300, courtesy of NatWest, by taking part in a Meme competition. Deadline for entries 16 September so hurry if you want to try and win some cash for your club. More details here.

The week will include stories from YFC members and be focused on the themes of Food and Farming, Environment and the Countryside, Rural Skills and Community.
