A BROMSGROVE teacher said she feels honoured after being chosen as the new chairman of the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs.
Hannah Talbot, head of English at South Bromsgrove High School, has been a member of Cutnall Green Young Farmers’ Club (YFC) in Worcestershire for more than ten years.
The 26-year-old was previously chairman of Worcestershire’s County Federation and also served as vice chairman of the National Federation for two years before her election to the top post.
Hannah, who will now be the lead voice for 25,000 Young Farmers from clubs and counties across England and Wales, said she wanted to reinvigorate the 80-year old organisation.
“I’m honoured to be leading an organisation that has so many members and offers such diverse opportunities.” she said.
“Young Farmers’ Clubs do so much work to support their local communities – not only by raising money for charities but also by being a vital social link for rural young people.
“I know how much of a lifeline our Young Farmers’ Clubs can be to rural young people in Worcestershire and this support is offered at all our clubs across England and Wales.”
Hannah is set to take on the Birmingham Half Marathon in October and is urging as many members as possible to sign up to the event and join her ‘Hannah’s Dashers’ team.
