The recent wet weather has delayed almost all the spring work for most young farmers – but it has opened a window for events and competitions, writes EVIE SCARBOROUGH–TAYLOR of Norfolk YFC.

Lambing has remained normal, though some who usually carry out lambing outside have moved into the lambing sheds to ensure their animals’ safety, so the lambs have the best start.

More of the arable work, such as drilling and spraying, was postponed until the fields began to dry out. With the warmer weather this week, the Young Farmers will be working at a high a pace to catch up with all the work missed in the past month.

But all the wet weather allowed many of the Young Farmers to attend Harleston YFC’s “Nite of Lite UV Social” which was held by kind permission of the Harrold family.

The next day, we had Sports Day which had been postponed during the snow and was held at Northgate High School. Congratulations to North Walsham YFC, whose ladies team became the badminton champions. Diss YFC came first in the frisbee despite, being a man down with only four players. After a tough final match against Swaffham YFC, Diss came first in the rugby.

Well done to all of the teams who competed, regardless of the weather.
