It was great to be back at St Peters Hall this year, for Carmarthenshire YFC’s Eisteddfod: face to face. Once again this year there was fierce competition at the Carmarthenshire Young Farmers Club County Eisteddfod on Saturday the 23rd of October 2021. After a full day of high quality entertainment, Llanllwni YFC captured the Eisteddfod shield this year. Congratulations to the club and also to Penybont YFC for coming second, and to Llanllwni YFC for coming first in the homework section too.
There was a tough job for all our judges with all the competitions throughout the Eisteddfod. Our thanks go to them all for their service. Mr Gwyn Nicholas judged the music section, Mrs Lowri Jones in the recitation, Mr Emyr Lloyd in the Light Entertainment Section, Eurfyl Lewis in the Homework Section and Dr Mererid Hopwood for juding the Prose and Poem.
