Farm­ers’ art at the hay stack

East Kilbride News - - NEWS -

East Kil­brideYoung Farm­ers’Club brought a piece of Paris to the town – with their Eif­fel Tower bale art sculp­ture.

As part of this year’s Scot­tish As­so­ci­a­tion of Young Farm­ers’na­tional bale art com­pe­ti­tion, the group con­structed their very own French-themed land­mark.

The La­nark­shire district held their own com­pe­ti­tion – but the EK team missed out on a prize with Avon­daleYoung Farm­ers’Club’s‘Tiger Tim’cre­ation plac­ing first.

How­ever, all the clubs will be gun­ning for top spot when the na­tional com­pe­ti­tion is judged.

East Kil­bride’s own Lor­raine Kelly will take a break from TV and judge the na­tional en­tries.

A win would give East Kil­bride Young Farm­ers even more to cel­e­brate after chair­man Katie Brown placed sec­ond at La­nark­shire Miss Young Farmer.

She will rep­re­sent East Kil­bride at the West Miss Young Farmer com­pe­ti­tion in the com­ing weeks.
