Annual quiz

Congratulations to the NFU team that won the annual quiz this year. Every year, four members of the YFC, farmers club, and NFU compete against each other to see who will win the cup for the year. The NFU team put in a solid performance with a total of 26 points, in comparison to 18 points from the farmers club, and 17 from the YFC. The questions were very tough, but covered a wide range of topics. Thanks to club president, Tim Bebbington for being the quiz master for the evening.

Success for Launceston YFC at County finals

The winter competitions have been underway in the New Year, with Launceston YFC winning the dancing, singing and member of the year competitions at the county finals. On Saturday 16th January, 8 members of the club won the Dancing round at Liskeard. They had to do four dances to the theme of ‘tomorrow’s world’ and use different dancing styles. The following day was the choir and member of the year competitions at St Ives. 17 members took part in the choir, where they had to sing two songs, one of which had to be from the TV series ‘Glee’. ‘All You Need Is Love’ by the Beatles was chosen, and also ‘Cornwall My Home’, a Cornish anthem. Competition was strong, but they pulled it off with a worthy 89 points. Thanks must go to Sally Grigg for the dance coaching, Roger Williams and Janet Ham for the directing the choir. Member of the year competitions were also held at St Ives on the Sunday, where club chairman Oliver Stephens won senior member of the year. Applicants for this go through a series of interviews and challenges, and it’s a great achievement. Congratulations also to Nick Uglow, who reached second place in the junior member for the year, a very respectable result. Well done to everyone that has taken part.

Parents Evening

The annual parents evening was upon us, and this year it was held at St Joseph's School hall. Club chairman Oliver Stephens and secretary Matthew Halls invited parents and friends there, where they went through a run-through of the previous year. It was said that it had been another great year for raising money for last years charity, the British Heart Foundation. After a short interval, YFC members performed to the parents the dances and songs the choir had been doing for competitions, and also a short piano piece by Tom Sharman, a pianist that has been helping the choir this year.

Visit to Plymouth panto - Cinderella

For the yearly pantomime trip this year, we chose to return to the Theatre Royal at Plymouth, after a break last year where we went to Lewannick. The pantomime this year was Cinderalla, and featured Gok Wan as the 'Fairy Gok Mother' and Paul Zerdin (Americas got Tallent Winner) as buttons. As to be expected, the night was filled with laughs and silly jokes, and was well worth going to see.
