An all female officer team head up HFYFC again this year for the third year running. On Monday 5th October, Herefordshire Young Farmers held their Executive AGM, and elected Miss Jessica Wright as County Chairman for the year 2015/16, assisted by Miss Fay Thomas as Vice-Chairman.
Jess joined the YFC movement in 2002, aged 13 and has never looked back. Having held numerous posts at Club level, Jess became Competitions Chairman for HFYFC in 2011, and has just finished a year as Training Chairman.
Jess is a familiar face in YFC circles and in 2014 all her efforts paid off as she was awarded 1st place in the National Senior Member competition at the Annual Convention in Blackpool. Competitions have played a major role in Jess’ YFC career and she has turned her hand to having a go at most things in the YFC programme, from stockjudging to tug of war, floral art to cookery, and even writing and performing in the Pantomime competition.
“YFC has been a massive part of my life for the last decade – I have made friends all around the County, developed my career with help from contacts, and met my fiancé through it. I was inspired as a Junior member, and always wanted to become County Chairman; now I’ve got here I can’t wait to get started, and hopefully inspire the members of the future!”
Herefordshire YFC will be holding their Annual General Meeting on Friday 23rd October, at Silks Bar, Hereford Race Course, starting at 7-30pm, for anyone who would like to attend. For more info – Tel. YFC Centre – 01432 274 187.
