We’re over halfway through National Young Farmers’ Week, so with no further ado here is the next member of our County Team for 2018/2019!

Name?

Christine Ford

Age

27 – age is just a number right?!

Member since?

2015 – I was 24 when I joined.

Club?

Winchcombe!

A little bit about you…

I was born and raised in Gloucestershire on a farm and moved away to go to university when I was 19. I’ve done a full circle of the south of England and ended up back where I started! I now work for the NHS as an audiologist (all things ears).

I’m privileged to call such a beautiful part of the country home and I love exploring it by foot, I am an avid walker. The tea and cake at the end is always a welcome too!

What does YFC mean to you?

YFC has given me the chance to meet loads of new people who I’m lucky to call friends and develop lots of new skills. I moved back to Gloucestershire when lots of my friends had moved away and YFC gave me the chance to get to know and develop more friendships from people of all walks of life (not just farmers) I’ve been Winchcombe’s club secretary for the last 2 years which has given me the opportunity to develop my organisational skills and most certainly my delegation skills, I am known for them!

Role?

Finance and General Purpose Chair

What does your role include?

It’s pretty much what it says on the tin. It involves reviewing the budgets for parties & other events put on by County along with any other business that doesn’t fit into one of the other meetings.

I’m proof that it’s never too late to join Young Farmers’. I’ve been a member for 3 years and on the Winchcombe’s committee for 2 of those! Now in my fourth year, I’m on the county committee! The more you put in, the more you get out of it so give everything a go and make the most of it. What’s the worst that could happen?!
