The YFCU look forward to working in partnership with all Young Farmers’ Clubs across the United Kingdom once the pandemic is over.

Commenting on the AGM Gemma Bruce, Scottish Association of Young Farmers’ Clubs, said: “It was fantastic to see so many members in attendance at the YFCU AGM.

“It was also great to see a number of candidates competing for the deputy and vice president roles.

“Both are a sign of the strength of the YFCU organisation and incredibly reassuring given the challenges faced by everyone this past year.”

YFCU were also proud to announce a special guest at the AGM, Niall Evans and Linzi Steward from Rural Youth Europe.

YFCU and Rural Youth Europe work in partnership on lots of different events across Europe, working to promote and activate young people in the countryside.

They provide international training possibilities and work as an intermediary between national organisations, youth organisations and public institutions on a European level.

Commenting on the AGM, Linzi Steward, chairwoman, Rural Youth Europe, said: “Thank you for inviting Rural Youth Europe to join YFCU virtual AGM. It was a privilege to attend.

Well done to Zita and all outgoing office bearers on doing an incredible job in a very difficult and uncertain year.

“It’s very inspiring to see how the members have adapted and overcome to keep the organisation going through challenging times.

“Best wishes to Peter and all incoming office members for the year ahead.”

She concluded: “We have no doubt you will continue to develop and go from strength to strength. Thank you for your continuing support to Rural Youth Europe and we look forward to engaging with more and more members both virtually and in person.”
