Words cannot describe how fantastic Sundays’ competitions were. Upton Upon Severn Young Farmers Club had great representation throughout the day and competed in nearly all of the competitions. Thank you to everyone that competed, supported, transported and donated various jugs, glass and costumes to aid the days success.
Massive congratulations to Alex, James and Rachel for all placing in the Member of the Year award, especially our lovely Chairwoman Rachel who took home the overall trophy and will go forward to represent Worcestershire in the coming months. Good Luck Rach! Congratulation to our Junior Readers, Jo, Jack and James who may have had their doubts but managed to all take home third place cards. Further congratulations to our senior ‘After Dinner Speaking’ team for placing second. There were some worryingly good acting skills from Rachel and last years club chairman, Chris Acock. I do hope that it was just acting! Last but not least, congratulations to the Upton Upon Severn Young Farmers Club dance troop who placed second, I cannot put into words how funny the performance was. I’m sure that video will find its way into many presentations for months if not years to come.
I would like to personally thank Naomi, our dance teacher, who saw more than just a group left feet trying to dance. Not only was she energetic and positive but every practice, come rain or shine, Naomi turned up with a smile on her face. She had a lot more hope than any of us, and truly believed, that in a few short weeks, we could perform on a stage in front of the rest of Worcestershire and not completely mess it up! Thank you Naomi 🙂
