Well done to the North East committee for organising the event. Next rounds of competitions - Attached is a list of the
competitors who have qualified for the next round of a
competition. They have all been contacted but those in red have
not replied, please check the list for any members from your
club and reply on their behalf. Competitors in the Farm Skills have not been contacted, apart from those doing the ATV element,
as we need someone who has the ATV qualification otherwise the
team will not be able to compete. Alistair Bland and
James Goodwin - please respond! Open Farm Sunday - Lower Hurst Organic Farm, Harrington are
doing Open Farm Sunday on Sunday 9th June, and wondered if
young farmers would like to be involved? It's a non-profit,
charity event and we thought the YFC might like to come and
promote themselves, engage with young visitors etc. They would also like someone to do a shearing demonstration. Please let
Hannah, Drew or Jane know if your club are interested in
getting involved. Big Summer Sesh on Saturday 22nd June at Stanedge Grange,
