Local stallholders were desperate to secure a place at Staffordshire Young Farmers Clubs’ annual Christmas Shopping Evening.

The event was the third that the Clubs have held and they’re developing a great reputation.

The vast Infester Suite at the County Showground was filled with 58 stalls from across the Staffordshire selling a beautiful array of handmade goods, food items, toys, pictures, Christmas decorations and clothing.

Despite the tail end of Hurricane Desmond reaching Stafford just as everyone came to set up, the evening was ready to open its doors to the public at 6.30pm with a brisk trade all evening. Visitors were greeted with a freshly baked mince pie and warmed mulled wine to set the festive scene for a great indoor shopping experience.

Eccleshall Young Farmers also took the initiative to cook and served freshly made pancakes on the  evening to those who hadn’t managed to eat before they ventured out.

A favourite activity amongst YFCs, as the new year approaches, is to produce a calendar that raises money for charity.

One such club is Stowmarket YFC in Suffolk, who have come up with a brilliant calendar for 2016, which features a three-wheeler similar to the one made famous by 'Del Boy' in the TV sitcom Only Fools & Horses.

Madge, the yellow three-wheeler, is pictured detailing her exploits on the farm - herding up dairy cows, corn carting, ploughing  just to name a few then doing tug of war  and even relaxing with the young farmers on a  picnic. A local farmer and his beloved car, helped out by the Club, had lots of fun framing photographs where the three-wheeler is helping out on the farm. 

The calendar is on sale now and ALL proceeds go to R.A.B.I. To obtain a copy, Contact Lucy at: 07739 297374 or You can also pay directly through PayPal using

Celebrating the artistic skills of its members resulted in a raft of awards for Clwyd YFC at their annual Eisteddfod in November.

Eisteddfod is a Welsh festival of literature, music and performance and Clwyd YFC hosted its own event at Denbigh Town Hall to a packed audience and four judges.

Competitions included instrumental solos, folk songs, mimes to music, recitations and a mixed choir – among others.

The winners went on to compete in the Wales Eisteddfod in Aberystwyth.
