National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

13 May 2011

NFYFC members joined in the fun at the Westminster Village Youth Fete this week.

The event, run as a traditional summer fair, brought together local and national youth organisations allowing them to promote their work and network with similar voluntary sector organisations, the public and government ministers.

Opened by the Lords' Speaker Baroness Hayman the fete featured Punch and Judy, Maypole and Morris dancing and the NFYFC team of Youth Forum members Aled Jones and Becca Watkins, and Steve Vincent, Ross Symons and Kirsty Carnell from the South West area led the welly wanging.

They spent time fundraising and chatting to Defra and NFU representatives about Young Farmers' Clubs and what they get out of being a member.

As well as an opportunity to network, NFYFC's delegates were able to see what other organisations exist for young people and visit London and Westminster. And youth forum spokesman Aled Jones even persuaded Baroness Hayman to try her hand at flinging a welly.
