We have a great group of co-ordinators who do all of the background work in YFC - whether its organising a competition, editing the County Handbook, or in charge of finding Trade Stands for our Annual County Rally. That's the beauty of Young Farmers, its lead by the members for the members.
I am pleased to say that I am County President for this fantastic organisation. Away from YFC, I work in the office of a large farming company in the north of the county and I enjoy travelling when possible, Japan and Russia are the most recent long-haul adventures I have had. I also enjoy horse racing, with trips to Cheltenham and York among the highlights of the racing calendar.
My involvement with Lincolnshire Young Farmers started as a junior member of Brigg and continued from there, through the years I have taken part in many competitions and attended numerous parties, events and social occasions. I have had a go at most of jobs on offer at the club, culminating in becoming Chairman. Away from Brigg I have also at various stages been secretary and chairman of the old Northern Region, Lincolnshire Show Co-Ordinator and eventually Lincolnshire YFC Chairman in 1998, an honour I am immensely proud of. I have maintained an active interest in the organisation, taking part in judging and stewarding.
I have many memories of being a member of this brilliant organisation, ranging from taking part in the National final of the Quiz on my first National AGM in Bournemouth to entering weird and wonderful competitions at the Rally, but probably my happiest memories of being a member is just the sheer pleasure of being with like minded people enjoying the moment. I have met some of my closest friends through YFC and continue to meet wonderful people in this unique organisation.
I’m the Strategic Development Manager for Lincs YFC and have been doing the job since June 2017. I’m married to Rob, a Farm Management Consultant for Fisher German. In my spare time (ha ha), I try to compete my own horse Purdey in dressage and eventing as well as hunt.
So much has happened in the last two years, I feel like its history! It’s been a whirlwind of great fun and lots of hard work :)
I haven’t got a single one but some of my favourite highlights have been; the County Rallies and The Lincolnshire Shows. Also any opportunity I get to share the Young Farmers message is great too, my favourite being live on BBC Look North in June 2018. But most of all, I love working with such fabulous, vibrant young people!
I am the County Administrator for Lincolnshire YFC. I have previously worked for Lincs YFC on a couple of occasions covering maternity leave.
I am married to David, a farmer, and we have two daughters. As a family we breed pedigree and commercial cattle and sheep. We have pedigree Hereford and British Blue cattle which we have shown, with much success, at Lincolnshire Show, Newark Show, Bakewell Show and the Great Yorkshire Show.
We have a small flock of Dutch Spotted Sheep, they are a new breed into this country and we are very excited about their potential. We look forward to our first lambs in Spring 2019.
I was a member of Corringham Young Farmers when I was (much) younger and then I became a member of Market Rasen Young Farmers where I made many lifelong friends and participated in various competitions.
My favourite memory from young farmers is the fact that I met my husband whilst I was a member and we have just celebrated our 30th Wedding anniversary.
