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.
