Re: Hadleigh Young Farmers

I saw a photo in the EADT of Hadleigh Young Farmers’ Club in May 1990.

I am the current Hadleigh YFC chair and have the original newspaper cutting in a scrapbook that was recently found.

In the photo are Chris and Sarah Partridge, Katie Turner, James Craske, Mark Smith and Steve Ladbrook. They are attempting to break the world record for bale rolling!

Hadleigh YFC was reinstated in March 2012, and Chris Partridge is now our club president.

The new Hadleigh YFC is proving a popular and successful club.
