Since the start of the new club year, Hillhall has been busy with a fun filled action packed programme which kick-started on September 13 with a registration night for new and old members.
For the first out meeting of the young farmer year, the club headed to Lisburn Bowl.
This was a great chance to officially welcome new members to the club but also encourage returning members.
A great night was had by all, and it was great to see the competitive side that Hillhall has to offer as Young Farmer competitions start to return.
On October 20 it was the battle of the H Clubs, as Hillhall Young Farmers and Hillsborough Young Farmers joined forces for an exchange night.
A challenge to find the best H Club was decided with inflatable gladiator. Hillhall, of course, rose to the occasion and came home victorious.
To kick off Halloween with a bang, Hillhall held a pumpkin carving night or should I say pumpkin smashing. It was great to see all the artistic designs on the pumpkins.
Most recently a few members from Hillhall headed down to the County Down Floral Art Competition in Ballynahinch.
The theme this year was ‘Twist & Turn’ and saw Hillhall’s Brian Wade placing third in his age category.
On Saturday, November 6, a few members swapped the overalls and wellies for the suits and high heels to attend the annual County Down Young Farmers Dinner Dance at the Clandeboye Lodge.
A great night was had by all and it was fun to see all the amazing dance moves.
On Monday, November 8, we had a in-hall meeting. Members took part in the home management competition. Each member was asked to demonstrate the correct way to aid someone into the recovery position.
The second task was to design a poster to advertise Hillhall Young Farmers Club to the local community.
To finish of the competition each member was asked to decorate four cupcakes to represent the four seasons. It was fantastic to see that there are some future cake decorators in the club.
Hillhall Young Farmers now looks forward to the rest of the winter programme and its 70th anniversary celebrations after such a strong start and hopes to continue the success at the competition season.
For the next upcoming meeting on Monday, November 22, at 8pm, Hillhall YFC will be joined by Love for Life, an independent Christian charity working to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and values necessary to make good choices when it comes to relationships and sex.
