On the weekend of the 5th and 6th of March young farmers from across the north of England gathered at the Richard Rose Academy, Carlisle for the annual competitions weekend, this year hosted by Cumbria YFC.

The young farmers competed in speaking competitions such as debating and ‘just a minute’ as well as preforming arts, choir, ballroom dancing and sports competitions.

Cumbria YFC had an exceptional weekend with Brampton YFC winning the Drama competition and Cumbria’s 3 teams coming 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall. Cumbria have many teams through to the next rounds of many competitions.

On the Saturday night a very well attended and enjoyable dance was held at H and H Auction mart, Carlisle.

The weekend was very well organised by Chairman Eamon Monaghan and Secretary Christina Coulthard.
