The Carmarthenshire Young Farmers Federation Public Speaking competition was held virtually for the first time ever on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th March. Although a new experience for the County, the standard of competition was still remarkably high across the 8 different departments.
Thanks to the stewards for making the day run smoothly. We are also very grateful to all the coaches for taking the time to train the members. Many thanks to all the judges for their excellent work during the day.
Good luck to all the members who will be representing the County at Wales level at the end of April!
