County Vice Chairman
To be updated shortly…….
County Junior Vice Chairman
I have been a member of Puddletown Young Farmers since 2015. During this time, I have held the position of Treasurer for three years, before transitioning to the Club Secretary role for the current year.
During the course of my involvement with YFC, I have taken an active role in my Club and County, enjoying all that YFC has to offer. This includes Club meetings, competitions, contributing ideas towards the annual Rally, fundraisers and participation in competitions (to varying degrees of success!).
Outside of Young Farmers, I work locally as a Charted Accountant – which is probably why I fell into the Treasurer role for my Club for a number of years!
I am looking forward to my role as Junior Vice Chairman.
I have worked for the Dorset Young Farmers since July 2013. I have never been a Young Farmer and am now unfortunately too old. I work in the County Office and I assist the 8 Clubs that we have in Dorset. I enjoy attending as many events as I possibly can from the County Rally and Show, County Competitions and further afield to South West Area Weekends. My favourite has to be the Dorset YFC Entertainments competition. Please feel free to contact me on any queries you may have I am happy to help, Dorset YFC is like an extended family with some great members.
Mrs Frampton has been a long standing Associate with Beaminster YFC for several years, not only being a former member but also holding roles as a Secretary, Treasurer and Chairman whilst at the Club. She has continued her time with Beaminster YFC in the role of Advisory and will be a great asset in the role of Deputy President.
County Deputy President
Married with two young children that k eep me on my toes!, working within agriculture and the related industries and currently on secondment to GCS Agricentre, My YFC history as Past Club, County, Staff Management, South West Area, NFYFC Development and Training and National Chairman and currently privileged to be a Vice President for the South West Area, a past Advisory Member for Puddletown YFC and also the Current Chairman for the Dorset YFC 200 Club, along with the exciting new role of Deputy Vice President for Dorset, when I look back at this (I should have made furniture! there’s a joke there somewhere)
I first joined Young Farmers as a 10 year old while living in my home county of Wiltshire. When I moved to Dorset to work, I joined Cheselbourne Young Farmers, and held offices at club level. I also was involved with County Federation and held office including Rally Chairman. I was also involved in the Dorset YFC Roadshow and took part in two sponsored Wotnots . I was Year Book Editor for two years. When I was too old for membership I was 200 Club Secretary for a number of years.
I originally trained as a Farm Secretary at Brooksby Agricultural College in Leicestershire, and worked in that role for many years. I have been a school finance officer for Dorset Council for 20 years and so have plenty of experience with accounts.
It is great to be involved and supporting the Dorset Federation of Young Farmers Clubs once again.
