The winter season for City of Derry YFC has proved to be exceedingly busy since it began on August 30 with a knockout held at Montgomery's Farm, Drumahoe where a great night's craic was had by all. The first club meeting was held on Monday September 19 and took the form of an 'Icebreaker Night' which consisted of fun and games. There was a great turnout of 57 members who attended the meeting and 12 of these being new members.
The first competition of the new programme was Floral Art which was held in Magherafelt High School on Wednesday September 28. Well done to all members who took part and special congratulations to Jemma Gamble who came 3rd in the 18-21 age category.
On Saturday October 1, David Devine, Alistair Craig and Gordon Crockett took part in the YFCU Advanced Fencing competition held in Aghanloo Showgrounds, Limavady and received 3rd place. Meanwhile, on Monday October 3, the club had its second club meeting where members enjoyed a night of fun in Lisneal College with Bubble Ball NI. This involved members getting inside giant inflatable balls and attempting to stay on their feet without being knocked over!
The club helped assist Faughanvale Presbyterian Church with their 20 mile route tractor run on Saturday October 8 and the club and church were overwhelmed with the support it received with 33 tractors taking part in the run from Faughanvale Presbyterian Church to Limavady and back again with a BBQ to finish off the day. A total of £800 was raised and all donations were going to the church.
