Ashdon and Saffron Walden Young Farmers meet weekly on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm, with the Kings Arms in Saffron Walden being our main meeting pub. We have a very diverse range of members that are totally non farming related and of different ages, 18-27 with some joining us at 16. The Young Farmers calendar involves everyone in the club from sporting events such as Rugby, Hockey and Netball, to Public Speaking and the renowned Tug of War.
Last year the club had 56 members, a vast majority of which were from totally non farming backgrounds. You make friends for life in the club and with parties and pub meets almost every weekend, the social calendar soon fills up. Currently we have members joining us from Haverhill, Cambridge, Thaxted, and some from Hertfordshire. Every Tuesday meeting is very different and last year saw us meet at Tattersalls Horse Sales, the Thurlow Hunt Kennels, and the Firepit Company. We also had talks from the Countryside Alliance, RABI Charity and a spooky Halloween experience with a female psychic.
We love to see new members, so if you want to make some friends for life and have a great time, contact our club Chairman Graham Ketteridge on 07787 396135, or the secretary Cordelia Kiddy on 07496 834897. Or find us on Facebook, Ashdon and Saffron Walden YFC and Twitter @Ash_Saff_YFC.
