Chairman’s Message

Hi everyone !

Thank you for electing me as your new County Chairman. Firstly, I would like to start by saying a big thank you to Matt Frampton for all his hard work in keeping the county going over the last two years through this difficult time.

The new YFC year has got off to a fantastic start and it’s great to see all the clubs being so active. Well done to all the clubs who have organised some brilliant harvest suppers and it’s great to see clubs holding fundraisers. Membership has increased dramatically, and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all the new members to Dorset YFC. I would also like to thank all the clubs especially the club officers for their great work in recruiting new members. 

This month marks the start of the county competitions starting with the Speaking Competition, I wish the best of luck to all those taking part. I would also like to encourage members new and old to get involved with county competitions they’re a great way to learn new skills and meet new people.

December means lots of Christmas events, bingos, meals and of course Marshwood’s Freshwater Ball, I look forward to seeing lots of you there. Hopefully this year will be a fun and active year with lots of events across the county.

Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2022


Steven Bailey
