Are you are holding an event between 22-24 July that’s open to the public and free?  Then why not take part in the London 2012 Open Weekend which marks ‘one year to go’?

At the NFYFC Agriculture and Rural Affairs Forum in Blackpool last month, Young Farmers’ Clubs (YFC) members pledged to champion British farming, especially in the run up to, during and after the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.

The Open Weekend is designed to engage people around the UK in the ‘Olympics are coming countdown’ and the theme for 2011 is ‘show your best’ which will give you the chance to showcase the diverse activities of YFC, attract visitors and possibly future members.

Agriculture and Rural Affairs steering group chairwoman Milly Wastie says: “Events registered as part of Open Weekend are promoted through the national and regional press as well as on the London 2012 website - so it’s a great way to champion British farming and raise awareness of Young Farmers’ Clubs.

“Registering events on the website is really easy. So get involved now and start the ball rolling for YFCs promoting British agriculture and we will see how we can build on this for a promotion campaign next year,” she adds.
