Dorset Rally 2015
Yearly Event

The Rally is a fun day, where there is something for everyone to do, meaning that everybody can get involved. I like to enter items I have made in the craft competitions and then watch/take part in the team activities in the afternoon. Although competitive at times, all of the clubs help and support each other and cheer each other on. This creates a friendly atmosphere, where it is easy to meet and talk to new people from different clubs. Overall the rally is a great day where you can pick up prizes, friends and have a laugh all at the same.

National AGM Weekend 2015
Yearly Event in April


I really enjoyed my weekend.  I was given the opportunity to assist the Staff of NFYFC Office with the set up of the AGM on the Sunday and was rewarded with a lovely Lunch to show their Appreciation. I met new life long friends. The main highlight was seeing all the different County/Club Shirt Slogans and fancy dress, everyone looked fab.  Thank you to the Staff at NFYFC, for all their hard work.

SWA Junior Weekend
Yearly Event in August


Junior SWA was such a good experience; it’s helped me to make new friends and links from other Counties in the South West. It was also a great team building weekend where we enjoyed lots of water sports and climbing activities. I strongly recommend all juniors to take advantage of this amazing weekend!
