Annaclone and Magherally Young Farmers’ Club, which is based in Banbridge, has had an action packed start to their club programme.
Approximately 40 members of the club bounced the night away at The Jump Boxx, Banbridge, on Spetember 14.
The club then hosted a ‘Know Your Neighbour’ Charity Tractor and Truck Run at The Outlet Park, on September 23. Money raised went towards The Children’s Heartbeat Trust and club funds.
The first competition of the new programme was Floral Art, held on September 27. Well done to all 13 members who took part, with special congratulations to Scott Boyd 3rd (12-14 age group), Connor Woods 2nd (12-16 age group), Ellen Woods 1st (18-21 age group), Jane Cowan 3rd (25-30 age group) and Jonathan Sleator 2nd (25-30 age group). Ellen Woods, who was placed first, will now progress to Balmoral Show 2017, to compete in the Northern Ireland Final.
The club have also met at Loughbrickland Presbyterian Church Halls, for a night of fun with Bubble Ball NI and visited Bleary YFC for jiving lessons.
Members had a unique opportunity to visit Thompson’s Meal Mill in Belfast, to observe processes involved in producing the various meal.
