Pickering & Butters were proud to sponsor this years Staffordshire County Federation of Young Farmers Clubs (YFC) AGM and Awards Evening, held in the Ingestre Suite, County Showground, Stafford on Friday 9th November 2018.
The County AGM was attended by over 250 invited guests and members of the Federation and is the most prestigious meeting of the Staffordshire YFC year.
Richard Mottershead, gave his County Chairman’s report on last year of activities. Richard, a member of Ashley Young Farmers said:-
“It has been an absolute honour to have been the Staffordshire YFC County Chairman over the past twelve months. I don’t think I’ve paused or had a night off since being elected but I have loved every minute of it. Even before I began my year, I knew I had two things I wanted to achieve. The first was to hold a large charity campaign that involved the whole county; the second was simply to enjoy the year, getting along with as many members as possible in as many clubs as possible. Standing here now, I would like to thank each and every one of you for both getting behind the Oatcake on Tour campaign for Young Minds, and for making me feel so welcome at everything I was able to attend. Because of that, I am thrilled to say, I achieved my aims, and I couldn’t be prouder of the year we have had together.”
It was reported during the meeting that Staffordshire YFC has 680 members aged 10 – 26 years. The members have benefited from taking part in some amazing charity work and playing an active part in their local communities.
Following the AGM, the presentations of awards were made by Mr Peter Stone, Staffordshire & Birmingham Agricultural Society Chairman.
As a local firm of Solicitors, Pickering and Butters were delighted to support the AGM – ensuring Staffordshire YFC receives the support it requires.
