Welcome to Upton upon Severn Young Farmers
Upton Upon Severn YFC
Hello and welcome to Upton Young Farmers !!
Upton Young Farmers have been serving South Worcestershire's Youth since 1942..
In Upton we take the motto 'Fun, Learning and Achievement' along with us in everying we do. The club is open to anybody from any background, and we belive it is extremely important that everyone feels welcome and involved.
Every year we have an action packed calendar with plenty of exciting visits, talks, classes and competitions. Activities include everything from Junior days, talks from local businesses and pumpkin carving, to Raft building, rock climbing, tug of war training and stock judging classes.
The annual Rally is the most important date in the YFC calendar and is where the club competes in over 70 competitions for a chance to lift the Championship cup within Worcesterhsire. Every year the rally has a theme, which competitions such as cake decorating, phototgraphy and wordwork are all based around. Other traditional competitions also held on the day, such as poultry boning, sheep sheering and tug of war, always draw a crowd and are highly competitive.
The club has a meeting every Wednesday evening, which is open to all members. We also have competitions regularly throughout the year at both county level and higher. Along with this we have many socials with other clubs and much bigger events for the older members to enjoy. These events are often held as a fundraiser for a club.
Fundraising is a very important part of what we do within YFC. This is for both the club itself, so that younger generations can get just as much out of YFC as what we do, but also for other charities. Previosuly Upton have raised money for MIND and The British Heart Foundation. Most recently, members shaved their heads and dyed their hair in order to raise money for Worcestershire Acute Hospital.
We currently have over 70 members aged 12 to 26 taking part in a wide range of activities. If you want to come along, have a go and experience what YFC is all about, then speak to Harry, the chairman.
