As the club meetings for Ahoghill Young Farmers’ Club for 2015-16 come to an end, a busy summer is ahead.

In February, the club held an exchange meeting with Kilraughts YFC where members got to know each other during a roller blading disco.

The members Jason Benton, Craig Hamilton, Paul Hurrell and Lucy Hurrell had to take part in games similar to those on the TV show.

In March, the club had a trip to Dundonald for a night of Crazy Golf and ice skating. To bring the club meetings for the year to an end, the club went to We Are Vertigo for a night of trampolining which was a great night for everyone.
