Annaclone and Magherally Young Farmers’ Club, located in Banbridge, Co Down, kick started their new club programme with the traditional new members’ night.

Over ten new members attended, along with existing members, and had a great night of fun and games, while getting to know each other.

The club members then went on their first outing of the year to Dundonald Ice Bowl.

Over 50 members of the club travelled down on a bus to the International Ice Bowl, where members either did ice skating or bowling and had a great night.

Within the next month, the club looks forward to a visit from Farm TV, a visit to a golf driving range and to an Ulster Rugby match, as well as participating in public speaking and swimming gala competitions.

The club year has just started, so there is still plenty of time for new members to join.
