Archived Stories Yet again it has been a busy couple of months for Culm Valley Young Farmers who have certainly not let the recent cold weather get in the way of the busy schedule!

The competitions diary has been full of events with Culm Valley being placed respectively in both the interclub table tennis and badminton. Further fixtures are scheduled with volleyball, hockey and basketball featuring early within the 2010 calendar! Eight members of the club are travelling to Val Thorens in the French Alps along with members from clubs across the region on the annual YFC ski trip - Hopefully the itinerary will not include any trips to A & E! As previously mentioned the group drama rehearsals are well under way in preparation for the production in February at Exmouth Pavilions, the winning performance from this round will then proceed to represent the group at the County round. All support is welcomed and for those keen to come along on the night, tickets can be purchased through the club.

Skills for Life Courses offer classes providing basic knowledge and understanding across a huge range of subjects from dog grooming to dry stone walling and ploughing to photography all interests are catered for. Recently members of the club took part in cake decorating classes with some impressive cakes produced in time for Christmas! Within this years Skills for life programme will be tractor driving lessons which  are soon to be finalised for the next coming months.

The next Young Farmers meeting is to be held at Hemyock Forbes Lounge on 9th February, new members are always welcome and for more information contact Sara Spiller on
