Norfolk's Young Farmers' Clubs (YFCs) have gained 100 new members in the last year, as they continue to rebuild after the Covid lockdowns.

The county federation's annual meeting at the Norfolk Showground was told that 2022-23 had been "another great year", with more competitions, training and fundraising events.

Outgoing Norfolk YFC chairman Henry Stanford said: "Having staged a comeback, there was no time to waste as we grew our membership by over 100 members this year, expanding to 507.

"Additionally we provided more training to more people and developed the levels of support we provide to members.

"I must also mention the combined donations from the 10 clubs to their chosen charities has reached an astonishing £50,000. I congratulate all involved." 

Mr Stanford said the "most notable achievement" was the relaunch of three "vibrant and thriving" Countrysiders clubs - the junior branch of YFC - at Wymondham, Harleston and North Elmham.

The meeting also welcomed the new committee for 2023-24 led by chairman Ben Johnson, while Tim Papworth was thanked for his support during his term as Norfolk YFC president, before handing the role on to the newly-elected president, former county organiser Ches Broom.
