Royal Cornwall Show

The talent of Young Farmers from across Cornwall shone through at the Royal Cornwall Show this year. The theme of the club cubicles this year was ‘Queen Elizabeth II- 60 ‘Diamond’ Years’ and the standard demonstrated by every club was extremely high. Three of Launceston’s individual handicraft items, a handmade quilt (Jess Brookham), portraits of the 12 prime ministers in the Queen’s reign (Oliver Stephens) and a Horse and Carriage model (Jess and Emily Brookham) achieved full marks.

The show also included other handicraft competitions; floral arrangements, Jubilee bunting and a salt dough model (to mention a few!). Launceston produced some excellent quality items and won this section overall.

On Saturday some members from Launceston took part in the Stock Judging competition, with Claire Butter winning the Lamb class and achieving second place in the Dairy. Tamsyn Bartlett and Dan Batten achieved equal second place and Tom Merritt came fifth in the Lamb Judging. Tom Merritt came third and Tamsyn forth in the Senior Dairy section. Becky Vine came first in the Junior Beef class and third in the Junior Dairy. Well done to Claire, Becky, Tom, Dan and Tamsyn for their performances in this competitive competition.

Saturday afternoon saw clubs re-enact performances from the Royal Variety Show. Dan Batten, Oliver Stephens and Tom Merritt’s singing and dancing abilities could have been from the original Billy Elliot and their show stopping talent won them first place!

A lot of hard work went into the competitions at the Royal Cornwall Show. Launceston Young Farmers gained first place overall- an excellent achievement of which they are extremely proud. Well done to everyone for their contributions.
