Entertainments and One Plus Competitions 2017
Between 22nd-25th February 2017, the County held the annual Entertainments and One Plus competitions at Whitchurch Civic Centre. It was a spectacular four days, which showcased the acting, singing and dancing talents of many of our members.
Fred Allen (SFYFC Competitions Chairman) congratulated all competitors for putting on performances of such a high standard and keeping the crowds very well entertained. "To prepare for these competitions, it involves weeks and months of hard work by members and the advisory so well done to all".
Thank you to Dale Brothers UK Ltd and Caleb Roberts who kindly sponsored the event. SFYFC really appreciates your continued support, enabling us to keep putting on the competitions.
A huge thank you to the judges for giving up so much of their time and for doing a wonderful job. Thanks must also go to the competitions committee and all stewards, who worked hard to enable such a successful event.
