Wix is the oldest club in Essex and one of the most dedicated! Predating the Essex Federation itself and with an active core of members both young and old we having been flying the flag at county events, parties and competitions since 1933.
The rich heritage we enjoy as a club means we have many members today who are the 2nd or 3rd generations of their families to join up. Our members hail from all across Tendring and further afield into Suffolk. Drawing from all walks of life we have office workers, plumbers, chefs… and yes even a few farmers in the club. With new members signing up all the time through friends, family, or simply word of mouth, this diverse mix of members continues to grow… so yes it’s true, you don’t need to be a farmer to be an Essex Young Farmer!
Wix meets on a Thursday evening at 8pm in the Haywain, Little Bromley, where we hold our club meetings, often welcoming guest speakers as well as exploring further afield with visits to places such as the Hunt Kennels or more light hearted fun attempting to stay upright at Rollerworld, or trying our luck at the amusements. We keep our programme of meetings and events as varied as possible to make it fun for all ages.
As a club we have all made new and lifelong friendships. Wix Young Farmers are always keen to welcome along new members into our ranks, so if you are thinking of coming along or want to know more join our Facebook page, or contact one of us and we will be happy to welcome you to Wix.
