Gwent YFC rally was a great success, with competitions ranging from skinning a rabbit, singing and chariot racing, to shearing and flower arranging. It was an honour to be asked to judge the rural crafts competition and it was encouraging to see such high standards. In the evening our barn was thumping with music and bursting with a few hundred intoxicated young farmers attending the legendary rally dance. This year we are celebrating 70 years of Abergavenny YFC and long may it continue.
