Easter update

The club entered their first competitions at Kent YFC Winter Competitions, turns out we’re quite good at baking!  Two seconds and a third were our rewards for the day, and two members also bravely competed in the Impromptu Public Speaking.  Over the Easter school holiday we visited Spenny Farm, Marden, to see the herd of South Devon suckler cows, and we also had an evening of NERF guns and fun in a friendly farmer’s grain store.  We arranged to meet up at Essex YFC show, and worked out what competitions we’ll enter in the YFC Section at the South of England Show.
