STICKING to tradition the Camelford Young Farmers’ Club (YFC) celebrated their members’ talents in a number of friendly competitions.

The tent was full of colour thanks to some very creative floral exhibits, with several inventive bouquets created simply out of the most colourful weeds.

There were sausage rolls, something the judges had a hard time judging. One said: “Each is as good as the next one, how are we going to choose a winner!”

Among the winners on the day was Libby Reynolds, who took home The Margaret Nute Camelford Young Farmers Girls Cup. She was delighted with the results but said the YFC was more about fun than competition for her.

“I joined when I was 18 and have been going for about three years now,” she said. “It is so nice to have everyone back at the show together. We of course have been doing Zooms throughout the pandemic to keep in touch but it isn’t quite the same.

“We meet every Wednesday evening for fun and laughter — it isn’t all about competitions you know!

“You don’t have to be from a farming background either — I live on a farm but I don’t have anything to do with that side of the business, but I joined the Young Farmers as it is a great way to meet people.”

Speaking about the results of the competitions on the day, Libby said: “I’ve done quite well today to be honest and I’m really pleased.

“The floral design competition had a Jubilee theme and I thought that one has to have a red, white and blue colour scheme.

“Luckily I had this crown at home so quickly put together a piece — I then lent the remaining flowers out to others so they could enter. Like I said, it isn’t all about competition, which is what I love.”
