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

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, and YFC members elected the people who they want to represent them as NFYFC ambassadors.

The 25-year-old, who lives in Worcester and is assistant head of English at the Chase School, Malvern, was selected after being involved with Cutnall Green for many years.

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

“The great thing about NFYFC is that you are constantly learning and developing new skills without really realising it,” she said.

“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.”
