The last couple of months have been a very busy time for Donaghadee YFC.

In April the club performed their 1 Act Play to an audience at the Queen’s Hall in Newtownards to perform an adaptation of “B&B”.

This was a great feat for the club with the biggest cast ever as 10 members took to the stage.

Everyones’ efforts and hard work were rewarded at the YFCU drama dinner in the Rosspark Hotel when the club picked up the award for third place.

On the evening Jane Kilpatrick also picked up the award for Most Promising Actress for her portrayal of Barbara.

Kicking off the summer programme members enjoyed an evening of Pirate Golf in Dundonald.

Cheating and holes in one were plentiful but a great night was had by all.

Members have also enjoyed competing in stockjudging competitions.

Congratulations go to Aaron Caughey and Hannah Spratt who were both placed fourth in their respective age groups in the dairy judging and to Kelsie Crawford who was placed in the silage assessment competition at county level.

The Rea family hosted an exchangee for one week. Jennifer came from Colorado in the USA and travelled around Northern Ireland before touring the rest of the UK and Switzerland.

During her short time in Co Down she visited sights such as the Mourne Mountains, Scrabo Tower and Stormont to name a few.

Finally, the club would like to send their congratulations and best wishes to to past secretary Kate McCormick on her recent marriage to Philip Richardson from Cookstown YFC.
