Successful candidates with Professor Wynne Jones, Rebecca Evans and Kate Miles.
During the Royal Welsh Show the names of the successful Junior Agri-Academy candidates were announced, with twelve out of the fourteen entrants being Wales YFC members.
The Junior Agri Academy, in conjunction with Farming Connect, aims to inspire young people to consider a rewarding and interesting career within the food and farming industry. The Deputy Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries, Rebecca Evans, was at the launch to congratulate the successful candidates.
The twelve members included four from Brecknock YFC; Elin Havard, Frances Thomas, Naomi Davies and Sioned Davies. From Carmarthenshire YFC were Aled Wyn Davies and Dafydd Evans. Eiry Williams, Lowri Mair Jones and Marged Jones made the line-up from Ceredigion YFC. From Radnor YFC were Ella Harris and Sian Davies, and finally from Glamorgan YFC was Jack Thomas.
Wales YFC’s Chairman, Kate Miles, who attended the launch said;
“It’s great to see so many YFC members getting involved in such an exciting opportunity. Participating in the Junior Programme will help develop each candidate’s skill set and extend their circle of contacts within the food and farming sectors. This will hopefully lead them to securing exciting employment opportunities within the industry.”
