Welcome to our new County Chairman
Worcestershire FYFC's 74th Annual General meeting took place on Thursday 9th November 2017, at their County Office; Shires Farm, Hawford.
The meeting saw a packed room come to hear retiring chairman Will Parry's review of the year and to welcome in Chris Acock as the County Chairman for the 2017-2018 year. As well as the appointment of new officers the meeting was a chance to celebrate the year and the achievement of so many members and present awards to those who had made outstanding contributions as part of their year.
Chris a farmer and heardsman, who has been in YFC since 2012 has been a member of Upton upon Severn Young Farmers' Club and held numerous roles their before becoming involved at County level and taking on the role of vice-chairman last year. Chris was wished well by retiring Chairman Mr. Parry and handed the chain of office.
The meeting also awarded a Live-Vice Presidency to Mr. David Pardoe, who has been a long standing supporter of WFYFC, including being County Chairman twice and holding the role of building trustee for the Federation.
