THE competitive nature of the Camelford Young Farmers’ Club (YFC) was evident in their show tent this year with some incredible displays.

Rainbow jelly, the largest cookie, flower arrangements in welly boots — there were truly some weird and wonderful creations to tempt visitors in.

Chairman of Camelford YFC Natalie Pethick said it had been a really good day for the YFC and competition had been fierce: “We just enter against each other but things can get a bit competitive — everyone says they don’t mind if they win or not, but you know they do!

“Aside from the competitions it is a good way for us to showcase what we do, like our entry to the Royal Cornwall Show and photography skills.”

The photographs in particular showed what life as a YFC member is really like as the theme was ‘best bits of YFC’.

Natalie said there are currently around 60 members in the Camelford branch, adding: “I believe we have one of the highest YFC memberships in Cornwall.”

She said the show really brings the whole team together. “We are able to come up here the day before and get everything set up and it becomes a real team effort with everyone supporting each other, which is great!”

The results of the various competitions were announced at the end of the day with a few going home with coveted trophies.

Among the winners was Beth Bosley who won most points in the girl’s section. She has been a member for four years now and still enjoys entering the competitions.

She said: “I’ve entered loads of different competitions and they all take a lot of time to make but I had fun doing it.

“I think my favourite thing to make was the rainbow jelly, but only because that was the easiest!”
