On Saturday 9th March, Staffordshire Young Farmers Clubs (YFC) held their successful Annual Dinner Dance at the Ingestre Suite on the County Showground for over 390 YFC members, guests and supporters of the organisation. The Black-Tie Dinner was themed as “Mad Hatters” with a very colourful Alice in Wonderland themed evening complete with an illuminated Cheshire Cat and a photo back drop painted by local talented member of Stone YFC, Phillippa Bourne.
The evening was also kindly supported by Barbers Rural Consultancy who are an independent firm of Chartered Surveyors, Rural Estate Agents and Auctioneers located in Market Drayton. Following a four-course meal, members and guests danced to Tecno, Tecno Disco, enjoyed a flutter on the Casino and socialised with members past and present in true YFC style. The raffle on the night was supported by Barclays Bank Match Funding for up to £1000 and prizes ranged from whisky and wine to vouchers for days out, all kindly donated by the federation’s Vice Presidents, who support Staffordshire YFC throughout the year.
The Annual Dinner Dance is one of the highlights of Staffordshire YFC’s busy social calendar and raises valuable funds to keep the federation running so successfully with over 550 members aged 10 – 26 years of age.
