It might now be closer to summer than Christmas, but around the festive time Radnor Valley Young Farmers took part in three nights of carol singing, raising a fantastic £1,550 for three chosen charities. 

After two years of cancelling the tradition due to Covid, members were delighted to get together, split into groups and carol sing around the Radnor Valley.

Chairman Sally Morris said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank the generosity of our community within the Radnor Valley."

This year the money raised was split between The Wales Air Ambulance, Dementia Matters Powys and The MND Association. Representatives from the charities attended the presentation evening where they gave educational talks about what they aim to achieve and how fundraising for them is crucial for the people that need them. 

The club now looks forward to hosting the Annual Radnor YFC Rally which is the biggest competition day of the year in the county calendar. The event will be held at Upper Womaston Farm, Walton by kind permission of Christopher and Kathryn Williams. It will go ahead on Saturday, June 10 and the main sponsors are MJS Energy. 

The club is busy meeting at the site, preparing for the day and is starting to get ready for the competitions that members will compete in. Competitions include stock judging, flower arranging, craft, singing, dancing, acting, the scrapbook, on the spot skills, shearing, wool handling, tug of war and many more.

There will be plenty to see for the public and supporters, so everyone is encouraged to come come along and join the fun.
