Holestone YFC has had an extremely busy year celebrating their 75th anniversary.
To round off Holestone’s 75th year the club held their annual parents’ and friends’ evening in Parkgate Church Hall.
The evening consisted of a club sketch ‘No School like Old School’, Lylestone choir which again was performed with neighbouring club Lylehill, one act drama ‘False Pretences’ and prize giving.
Holestone YFC’s guest speaker on the evening was Mr Michael Reid, CEO of the YFCU, and thanks must go to him for giving up his time to be with Holestone YFC.
Donations on the night were in aid for the Northern Ireland Air Ambulance.
The prize distribution saw a new cup being donated this year for Ulster Young Farmer of the Year by the Robson family, in memory of their grandfather George Robson.
