Axminster Young Farmers’ Club celebrated another fun-filled year at its harvest supper in The Guildhall.

This guest speakers were Nick Creasy who is the organisation’s manager for Devon YFC and Angela Pavey, one of the club’s advisory members.

During the year the club raised almost £7,000 for five different charities all of which have helped past members.

The club has also taken part in various competitions in the year including sports, a livestock show and sale, performing arts, speaking competitions and Devon County and Honiton shows within the young farmers’ tents.

Members have had a busy time attending various social events across the south west, enabling them to meet lots of other people all of a similar age.

The club has also organised various events in the year including four discos, two bingos and a quiz.

Said member Alice Gay: “Young Farmers is a brilliant way to meet new people, learn new skills and you do not need to be a farmer to be a young farmer!
