Winning SAYFC club of the year would be a great privilege. We are a small North East club built up on the hard work and dedication of our committee and members. Working closely with our local community at charity events and providing a wide range of activities during our summer and winter syllabus’s has seen us go from strength to strength and now looking forward to our 90th anniversary year in 2020.
We would love to win club of the year for three reasons. 1. This year East Kilbride has welcomed new members from both agricultural and non-agricultural backgrounds, resulting in us being innovative with our syllabus in order accommodate members from all walks of life. 2. We have developed strong links within our community through volunteering 74 hours to local organisations, donating pints of blood, maintaining a relationship with the local press and local agricultural show. 3. We had fun competing at district, regional and national level with the added bonus of bringing home certificates and silverware; securing the future of the club for our younger members.
We would love to win club of the year because it would be a great way to show our appreciation to our members for their commitment in attending many events within East Region and National, despite taking into consideration the distance travelled for many of these events from the Borders.
Despite this past year being thought on the club due to a tragic loss of a member, we have rallied round to support each other through this and has definitely brought the club closer together. We are always willing to accept new members and make them part of our family.
We would love to win club of the year because our members have worked so hard in everything they have taken part in this year. We as a club have made a huge effort to help the local community and charities, creating networks for future entrepreneurs in agricultural industries and developing our members in all aspects life.
We would love to win club of the year because we have encouraged all members to get involved through our varied syllabus and promoting "Young Farmers is not only for those who wear wellies." We gained 13 new members (11 competing in competitions) by contacting the local high school, achieving 3rd for recruitment in our region. Organising additional training before competitions provided members with confidence to enter all district events and more East events and we were awarded 2nd place for participation in the region. We appreciate the importance of RHET and worked closely with them to run workshops and will continue to support them as we recognise the rewards this brings to members and the community.
