‘Unofficial’ Young Farmers weekend to go ahead

The unofficial ‘DIY weekender’ was kick-started by Yorkshire YFC member John Houseman, 20, with almost 5,000 people having registered their interest.

 

The event across the first Bank Holiday weekend of May 3-5, will imitate previous years in Blackpool, with local bars such as Revolution, Walkabout and Yates already on board.

 

The group is keen to rid its tarnished reputation after the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs’ (NFYFC) axed the popular event.

Those planning to attend have been asked to give a £5 minimum donation to both the National Air Ambulance and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

 

Charity

Mr Houseman said: “Following the incidents which put our reputation in jeopardy last year, it is important we show what most Young Farmers are really like.

 

“As a way of giving back this year and due to there being no attendance fee, we are going to raise money for the National Air Ambulance and Blackpool RNLI.”

 

Young Farmers who have booked their hotels for the weekend have also arranged club t-shirts and there is talk of a fancy dress night.

On the event’s Facebook page, Walkabout Blackpool said it had an ‘amazing trouble-free time last year with a great bunch’ while Revolution Blackpool said it was looking forward to welcoming revellers.

 

“I have been speaking to bar managers and they are really keen to put on quite a big thing,” Mr Houseman added.

 

“The positives about going to Blackpool are it is free to go, there are no curfews and you do not have to camp.”
