Andrew Porter from Mountnorris YFC was named the Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster Junior Member of the Year at the association’s Annual General Meeting and conference which took place at Armagh City Hotel. Sponsored by United Feeds, Andrew was one of six finalists for the award.
Andrew has worked as Mountnorris YFC’s club treasurer this year, and has helped to organise some of the club’s events to date. First, Andrew was able to secure a grant of £5,700 for the club and this grant is helping to lift the club, and to facilitate events such as their tractor run in memory of Andrew and Mark which Andrew was also proactive in organising. Andrew has set an example to new members this year, attending competitions such as Public Speaking and Floral Art, all part of helping to increase Mountnorris YFC’s participation in competitions this year.
