Kilrea YFC’s have been continuing their busy schedule with club meetings and competitions.

The club enjoyed success at the group debating heats held at Magherafelt High School where the team of Abbie Canning, Adam Alexander and Timmy Davidson were placed second in 18-21 age group, well done to everyone.

Thanks to Linda Steele for preparing the team for the competition.

Members of the club travelled to the county dinner where a good night was had – well done to all club members who received awards at this occasion.

The club held their annual carol service in Swatragh Presbyterian Church on Sunday 4th December where members took part in the service.

The collection on the evening of £270 is to be donated to NI Cancer Fund for Children.

The club pass on their thanks to pianist Edith Reid, the Reverend Conway and the congregation of Swatragh Church, to Rosetta Campbell for making the mince pies and shortbread for the evening and Mrs Williamson for her assistance with the catering. Thanks to all who supported the event.

The following week the club then headed to take part in the annual choir festival held by YFCU.

Although no awards were won the members taking part enjoyed the experience and extend their thanks to Olivia Gordon, pianist, on the occasion and to David Linton for leading the choir.

At the last club meeting the club held their annual Roving Supper and again this proved to be very enjoyable given the delicious array of food put on for club members.

Many thanks to Mary McIlroy, Beth McCormick and Sara Mulholland for their delicious spreads and for their hospitality.

The next event in the club calendar is the annual Boxing Night disco (on 26th December) to be held in Burberries at Magherabuoy House Hotel, Portrush and a good night is once again expected.

So to finish off 2016 
the club would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas.
