Official Opening of the Radnor YFC Centre...
It was a honour to welcome the Honourable Mrs Shan Legge-Bourke the Lord Lieutenant for Powys to officially open the new Radnor YFC Centre, with current members, Vice Presidents as well as our current County President, Gwyn Price attending. Gemma Bufton, County Chairman hosted the evening and gave an insight into the fundraising and hard work over the past 2 years in purchasing and renovating the building.
In 2016 under the watchful eye of Adam Rees & Heidi Davies our former County Chairman and Reg Cawthorne the then Chairman of our Board of Management - Radnor started the process of purchasing and renovating our first ever building for the running of our Federation. We have now created a modern and practical space to ensure the successful running of our Federation, whilst also providing a vital source of income by renting out our meeting rooms.
Radnor YFC currently has 520 members across 13 Clubs through Central Powys. The Young Farmer movement not only in Radnor but across the whole of Wales provides vital opportunites for young people to meet new people, learn new skills and most importantly provides a voice to you people who are often not heard.
In the first 3 quarters of this year Radnor YFC recorded over 17,439 contact hours which equates to over 33 hours per member - this doesnt even include the hours of voluntary support and training given by the Club leaders throughout the county. Young Farmers really is very much at the heart of all our rural communites.
