A sunny, successful Rural Skills Day

Last Sunday saw our annual Rural Skills Day - filled with fun, sunshine and some special visitors!

When you have a day full of outdoor competitions, the main thing you need is sunshine. And thankfully, we had plenty of that!

With competitions going on throughout the day, members had a very enjoyable time at Myerscough College.

Competitions included: Egg throwing, fence errecting, efficiency with safety, pedal tractor driving, mini digger handling, scavenger hunt, and many more.

We also had some special guest judges on the day. Ed Ford - the newly elected NFYFC chairman came to Lancashire for the day to judge the egg throwing and pedal tractor driving, along with Gerald Norman, Eastern Area Chairman, and Ed's dog - Olly!

Katie Hall, the newly elected NFYFC vice chairman also came up for the day to judge the Scavenger Hunt and all guests said they truly enjoyed their day.

As usual, Lancashire YFC were mentioned on BBC Radio Lancashire thanks to friend of the federation, Stephen Lowe who hosted his Sunday show from the new Myerscough College farm with former LFYFC Chairman, James Oddie.

All in all, it was a fantastic day and we would like to offer a huge thank you to everyone involved on the day and behind the scenes.

Overall, Parbold YFC came in third place, Croft YFC in second place and Pendle YFC in first place.

Congratulations to all who took part and to all those who have qualified for the next round!
