The Chair was sponsored by Denbigh’s Erfyl and Sioned Jones, former members of the Nantglyn club.
It’s now been formally handed over to Gwenno Davies, chair of Clwyd YFC.
Erfyl said it was a privilege. “The YFC is very close to our hearts,” he said.
“Both Sioned and myself have achieved so much by being members – we have had numerous opportunities to compete and learn.”
Clwyd YFC’s Eisteddfod is at Denbigh Town Hall on Saturday, October 26, from 3pm.
Adjudicator is Sian Alwen.
