Wick Young Farmers Club held their Annual General Meeting in Wick Village Hall on August 20 when some familiar faces of past members were in attendance and a keen interest from a highly promising band of budding juniors.
To the Club’s delight, John Lougher of Ty Tanglwyst Farm was re-elected as club president. He continues to be an enormous asset, having been an incredibly successful past member with a font of knowledge within both the YFC and agricultural sector, bringing an abundance of support, enthusiasm and guidance.
It was a great relief for the club with Charlotte Thomas continuing as club leader, given her appointment as Honorary Secretary for the Royal Welsh Show when Glamorgan host in 2021. Lloyd Harris Thomas, Tom Edwards and Jon Thomas also continue as club leaders with additions from Alex Edwards and Victoria Powell, both having had an enormously successful year as chair and vice chair last year. A popular choice as chairman was that of Luke Morgan. Luke has an abundance of ideas to take the club forward and is certainly hitting the ground running. Following the AGM, Luke stated he hopes to strengthen club’s bond within the community, enhancing its image within County and in Wales while ensuring an efficient and effective communication network.
Supporting Luke on the panel are Catrin Long and Rory Vizard as vice chair with Rory also undertaking the role of treasurer. The club welcomed Alisha Major as club secretary having had two very successful years as PR, with Rhianna Jones as minute secretary and Hollie Jones as PR. The club is open to members from any background whether farming or not, from 10 to 26 years old. If you’re looking to make new friends, learn new skills, travel the globe or simply have an abundance of fun, why not come along?
