West Arts & Crafts

West Arts & Crafts

On Saturday 13th May the West Region converged once again on Ayr for the first big show of the Scottish Season. The Young Farmers were out in force and SAYFC had plenty of action going on in the tent and throughout the show ground, including; Arts and Crafts on display, members competing in the open tug of war, RHET’s charity cycling challenge and even a live recording of the Rural 2 Kitchen Podcast. The main SAYFC Competition for the day was West Arts & Crafts (kindly supported by DairyFlow) with entries being displayed in the Young Farmers Tent.
