Summer Fun as Machars Young Farmer’s make a big Splash

On the 15th July, Machars Young Farmers swapped their wellies for wet-suits and spent their Saturday afternoon a little differently!

A spokesperson from the club said “Despite the freezing cold water we had a great laugh at Galloway Activity Centre’s ‘Wobbly Waterpark’ at Lochken. It proved a perfect outing for Alastair Cannon to show off his signature Tom Daley-Esque dives into the loch and for Rose Nash and Emma Robinson to prove they both have the balance of a newly born deer!”

They Continued “A great effort was put in from all the girls who came along to Machars Young Farmers Netball Night at Port William on Thursday 13th July despite the weather. Thanks again to Debbie Johnstone and Dib Penrose for providing their expert coaching. Hopefully next time we can prove to Debbie that the sun can shine in the Port!”

On Sunday 17th July, Machars Young Farmers held a sports night at Maxwell Park in Port William with support coming from as far away as Dubai for the home team! With a great attendance, we kicked off the night with a game of hockey. We swiftly moved onto football before the hockey sticks were used as golf clubs! We then rounded off the night with a game of rounder’s.

This week we the club hold their annual Sheep Stockjudging at Larg Farm, Creetown on Friday 21st July from 7.30pm followed by a Charity Coffee Afternoon on Saturday 22nd July at Wigtown Food Festival Marquee from 1-3.30pm, every is welcome to come along to both events.
