Fishguard sitting pretty

After a packed day of singing, recitation and comedy at the Pembrokeshire YFC eisteddfod Fishguard were the club sitting pretty as they won the overall title and one of their members scooped the coveted chair prize.

The eisteddfod took place at Theatr y Gromlech, Ysgol y Preseli, Crymych on Saturday, and saw scores of young farmers from all over the county competing in the traditional singing and recitation competitions, and the not quite so traditional sketch, improvised news bulletin, humorous duet and the ever popular mime to music.
The highlight of the event was the chairing ceremony, when Ffion Haf Williams ensured the chair returned to Fishguard once again, when she won the chair for her poem story on the theme cymuned (community).

As the night wore on, three clubs found themselves in the running, with Fishguard eventually coming out on top, ahead of Eglwyswrw in second place and Llysyfran in third, although there was some consolation for the two runners-up as they shared the cup for the highest-placed club in the homework section.

Some of the winners will now be selected to represent Pembrokeshire at the Wales YFC eisteddfod in Aberystwyth on November 20th.
