Welcome to Cambridgeshire Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs.

We are part of the National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs (NFYFC), one of the largest rural youth organisations in the UK with over 25,000 members and 630 Clubs.

The National Federation heads up Young Farmers, providing the framework for a whole host of exciting events, competitions and new experiences but it’s the members who really make the decisions.

YFC is led by young people, for young people and provides anyone aged 10 to 26 with a fantastic chance to meet lifelong friends, learn new skills, make a real difference to the local community and even travel the world!

There are eight Clubs within the Cambridgshire area and it may surprise you to learn who we are and what we do; we don't wear wellies all the time and a large number of our members have no links to agriculture at all, just an interest in the countryside and a desire to meet like minded young people. Everyone is welcome to join us to enjoy activities ranging from from ten-pin bowling to team building activities and cookery to livestock judging!

Please take a look at our website and see what opportunities there are to get involved and get in touch if you like what you see, we'd love to meet you!

 

Who's who?

County Chairman: Hannah Irons

Club: Newborough YFC

Age: 26

Occupation: Farm Grain Buyer & Seed Sales

How long in YFC: I think it must be around 6 years now!

Why did you take on a County Officer Role? I was County Secretary/Treasurer last year and when the opportunity came up to take on County Chairman, I couldn’t wait to get started. I hoped to be able to make a difference to the County and the members and am grateful to everyone who has supported me along the way.

What do you enjoy most about the Role? Getting to represent the 200 members within Cambridgeshire Young Farmers. It is great to see the individual members, Clubs and the County developing and growing all the time. I also love seeing members achieve all the great things that they do! It is great to feel like you are part of a team, we do a great job of pulling together like one big family.

What skills have you learnt that will help you in the future? The list is endless! I am more confident in new environments, meeting new people, speaking in public, organisational skills, I just need to work on finding more hours in the day!

 

County Vice Chairman: George Baxter

Club: Soham YFC

200 Club February 2017 Draw Winners Announced

The third draw of the Cambs FYFC 200 Club was held at the County Committee meeting on Monday, 6th February 2017.

The winners were:

First Prize: Christine Johnson (ticket no. 75)

Second Prize: Harry Griffiths (ticket no. 99)

First Aid Training

Another weekend, another training course.  This time 7 people attended a 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work course.

Learning the skills to deal with medical emergencies was not only interesting, but also gave the attendees the confidence that they can help should they come across an incident in the future.

Again this course was provided free for the benefit of our members and they have gained skills that are valuable in many areas of their lives and not just Young Farmers.

Safeguarding Training

21 members, club advisory and office staff have just completed a half day safeguarding children course.

Although at times it can be a difficult topic it is important that we have the correct knowledge to allow us to support the young people who enjoy coming along to Young Farmers and getting involved in all of the activities and competitions.  This is exactly why we put on courses like this for our members and supporters at no cost to them.

A great start to 2017 for Cambs FYFC

The new County and Club Officer teams have ensured an excellent start to the new year with a variety of activities for Young Farmer members to get involved in.
