WHITFORD were at the top of the pile as local YFC members turned out in force for a day of competition.

The Clwyd Young Farmers field day was held at Llysfasi College once again this year.

Organisers are very grateful to the principal and staff for their support and co-operation in staging the event.

On the day, a variety of competitions were held, which gave the opportunity for all members to get involved.

In third position came Cilcain.

Thanks go to the stewards and judges for their hard work during the day.
