YFC members have a successful day at the 2020 Winter Fair.
Members of Pembrokeshire YFC were back in the competitive spirit recently when they held their first competition day since February. The Winter Fair was held at the County Showground ensuring that strict Covid-safe measures were in place. It was great to see members don their traditional white coats once again with all 12 clubs participating.
