A TEACHER who has been a member of Cutnall Green Young Farmers’ Club for more than 10 years has been elected to the post of vice chairman for the national organisation.

Secondary school teacher Hannah Talbot was elected to the role for leading rural youth organisation the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs (NFYFC).

The annual national council elections took place at the Quality Hotel Coventry on Sunday, October 28, and YFC members elected the people who they wanted to represent them and to be ambassadors for NFYFC.

Hannah, 25, who is from Worcester and an assistant head of English at The Chase School in Malvern, was selected after being involved with Cutnall Green’s club more many years.

Her new role will be to ensure the federation’s 25,000 members across England and Wales are represented and to help develop the organisation, which is currently celebrating its 80th anniversary.

She said: “The great thing about NFYFC is that you are constantly learning and developing new skills without really realising it. Often, it's only when someone asks how I've gained experience in something, or why I'm skilled in a certain area, that I realise it has come from my involvement with YFC.

“It’s a fantastic organisation to be a part of and I am looking forward to promoting it to more young people and representing our members.”
