BLEARY YFC got off to a great start after the summer break last year, with Covid restrictions being eased and members allowed to meet face to face once again.
As a result of the tractor run in August 2021 being a huge success, members welcomed a member of staff from Macmillan Cancer Support to receive a cheque for £5,000.
This donation will touch many lives as the charity is close to many hearts within the club.
The club’s first evening back was a registration night where the club welcomed over 60 new members. Bleary YFC was pleased to support #backbrittishfarming as many members participated in the campaign.
The next face-to-face meeting was a farm safety talk when Robert Smyth provided members with valuable information about how safety on the farm can save lives.
Over 40 members headed to Craigavon to participate in a game of very competitive bowling.
In October 2021 members headed to Crumlin Road Gaol for a Halloween attraction – some enjoyed this experience more than others!
The County dinner approached very quickly, which was a club highlight as this was missed in 2020 due to Covid-19.
Bleary Young Farmers was crowned ‘Best Club in County Armagh’, as well as club officials being placed first in the County.
This was a huge achievement for the club! Members received various certificates from competition successes in
An exchange night with Crumlin YFC was very informative as there was a talk on mental wellbeing, as this topic is so important, especially in the rural community.
As Christmas approached members enjoyed a Christmas party filled with fun, food and games.
Throughout the course of the year to date, members have taken part in various competitions, including floral art, public speaking, beef and sheep stock judging, beef and lamb championships, Ulster young farmer and home management. Members have been very successful in these competitions as they have been placed not only in County heats but also at Northern Ireland level.
We hope that 2022 holds future successes for the club!
