We’re Helston & St. Keverne YFC and host a local annual ploughing match. The ploughing match is the responsibility of the current vice/assistant team, this year comprising of Jono Gilbert (vice-chairman), Zeinab Weyers (assistant secretary) and Lauren Clark (assistant treasurer).
Since we started hosting a ploughing match, over 15 years ago! It’s grown from strength to strength, with over 50 ploughing entries and over 200 domestic entries each year. As the ploughing match has matured we’ve added more competitions, making it a highlight of the social year with the locally anticipated tractor pull regularly having over 50 participants.
We’re a local youth club with over 40 members aged between 10 and 26, we meet every Thursday evening with varied activities including sports such as kayaking, farm walks, visiting local businesses and social evenings.
