Photos: The Farmers Weekly Fun Awards from the YFC AGM

With more than 6,000 young farmers in Blackpool at the weekend for the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs’ annual convention, there were some funny photos to be taken.

The Farmers Weekly team was out and about with cameras and at all the parties to capture the action.

Here is a selection of the best shots from the seaside town…
