Club members Harry Crosby, Lauren Nannery and Matthew Davidson also took part in the YFCU’s Got Talent in the Tullyglass on January 7th.

Spa YFC also competed in the ten pin bowling competition.

Spa YFC’s 74th AGM took place on Tuesday, January 17, which saw new faces join the committee and members take on new roles.
