Young Farmers can talk the talk

MORE than 50 Young Farmers showed they can talk the talk when they battled it out in a war of words.
Twenty teams travelled to Ysgol Pentrefoelas to take part in Clwyd Young Farmers Clubs’ annual Welsh public speaking competition on Thursday night.
The judges across all four categories were highly impressed with the skills shown by the young people from Llannefydd, Nantglyn, Whitford, Uwchaled, Llangollen, Ruthin and Betws yn Rhos Clubs.
Llannefydd club won the under 14 reading competition judged by Haf Evans of Henllan, with Nantglyn A second and Whitford third.
In the under 16 category Uwchaled YFC did well, with teams from the club coming first and second while Whitford and Ruthin shared third place. The category was judged by Hywel Richards of Ruthin.
Betws yn Rhos YFC were victorious in both the under 21 debating competition, judged by Gwenan Prysor of Henllan, and the under 26 contest. Nantglyn and Uwchaled clubs shared second place in the under 26 category, adjudicated by John Les Tomos of Hendre.
Overall winners Betws yn Rhos were presented with a shield by Dewi Ellis, vice chairman of Clwyd YFC.
It was a double whammy for Betws yn Rhos Club who were also overall winners in Clwyd YFC’s English public speaking competition held on January 20 at Ysgol Terrig in Treuddyn.
The best performing individuals from each age category will now go forward to represent Clwyd at the Wales YFC final in Builth Wells in March.
 “It was a great night of competing,” said Clwyd YFC county organiser Eleri Roberts.
“Congratulations to our winners and thank you to Ysgol Pentrefoelas and our judges and stewards for their dedication and experience.”
