Newtownards Young Farmers’ Club have had a busy start to the new year.
Recently the club got four teams through to the Northern Ireland finals of group debating, with all four teams winning a county cup and the 18-21 team of Jane Patton, Heather Martin and Joy Dalzell winning their age group for the second year running.
Newtownards teamed up with Ballywalter and Donaghadee this year to embrace the Young Farmer’s moto “Know Your Neighbour” having several fun and games nights this year.
They also teamed up to do the annual choir festival, naming the team ‘Newballydee.’
Andrew Patton and Laura Wilson had a busy few weeks partaking in the Strictly Come Dancing competition recently in La Mon Hotel, so a big congratulations must go to the pair for their hard work and dedication.
Alex Lyttle, Graeme Warden and James Stewert came second in the fencing competition, with Alex also winning the soil assessment competition.
The club’s Christmas outing this year was to the Crumlin Road jail, with nearly 40 members going.
The club will continue to have a busy year with the annual arts festival competition looming after Christmas, and more exciting meetings.
