MEMBERS of five young farmers clubs in North Devon took to the stage in Barnstaple to present their entertainment in this year's YFC competition.

They performed Show Me The Way To Glastonbury, full of singing, dancing and comedy.

Press secretary for the North Devon group, Jess Brayley, said: " It was brilliant to get some of our younger members involved and we definitely have some up and coming actors.

"The performance went very well and we are very pleased with our finished product.

"We would like to thank Center Stage, Pottington, for hosting us and Paul for doing the lights."

Awards were presented to James Wallis (Braunton YFC) for best actor; Rachael Pincombe (Meshaw YFC ) best actress; Nick Kennard (Braunton YFC) best junior; Sam and Isaac Zeal (Braunton YFC) best supporting; and Michaela Mitchell (Braunton YFC) most help behind scenes.

A total of 17 members, including nine juniors, were in close competition for the member of the year.

After presentations and interviews Luke Aris won the senior award and Jess Brayley the junior award.

They will both now represent the North Devon group at the county event on March 1, where the finals of entertainments and choir will also take place.
