CHIPPING: Young Farmers’ ‘Back To The Future’ rally

Young FARMERS - Members of Chipping Young Farmers’ Club met for a walking treasure hunt around the village and surrounding area. The hunt was set by advisory members Mrs Anne Seed and Mrs Doreen Bailey and teams of three set out to prove their knowledge of the area; testing their powers of observation of nature and plants. Despite one team getting lost in their own village, a very enjoyable evening was had by all and the winning team, led by Rob Flaherty, proved you don’t need to live in Chipping to win.

Members enjoyed a hot-pot supper prepared by the organisers and thanks were expressed to Mrs Bailey and Mrs Seed by Matt Parkin.

Officers ensured all members were preparing their entries for the County Rally at Standish in the floral art, “Ready, Steady, Cook” and team cookery.

Tickets are on sale from the county office for the “Back to the Future Rally” event at Home Farm, Standish, on Saturday, June 4th. Run on the lines of the old-style club rally, all members, past members and supporters of Lancs YFC are invited. Tickets are £5 each (£20 per team of four) which covers entrance to the rally dance where the winner of the £100 prize will be announced. For all those who have been involved in YFC, this should prove to be a “not to be missed” event.

The next meeting will be on Monday, June 6th.
