After months of planning, the Royal Norfolk Show is upon us with the annual stand seeing weeks of member's hard work coming to fruition. Norfolk Young Farmers set a theme for clubs exhibits, writes Helen Reeve.

This year the YFC stand will be alive with animals - of the recyclable species!

The majority of clubs have an animal as their club logo which features heavily on club shirts, programmes and publicity material.

Clubs have been making life-size models of their club's animal logos out of materials that can be recycled. Tomorrow is the main day for setting up models on the YFC stand at the showground; clubs are reminded that the main part of your exhibit must be in place by 4pm.

Members will be able to access the showground on Monday and Tuesday night to add finishing touches to their exhibits, but try to get your stands sorted out early.

If you have any queries regarding the exhibits and the YFC stand, contact show chairman, Will Patrick, on 07810 554363.

As an added feature to the YFC stand, this year two competitions will be held to attract fresh faces to find out more about the YFC movement.

The second day of the RNS sees the traditional stockjudging competitions taking place. Those taking part should have received information regarding times and judging rings.

Also on Thursday, members will be pulling a tractor from the YFC stand to the grand ring to present a cheque with the money raised from the tractor pull held in April, to a representative from the Make A Wish Foundation. Members need to meet at the YFC stand at 1.15pm and there has to be at least 20 members to help.
