Recent activities we have held: 

Lutterworth’s programme is always jam packed and meetings are always fun for all of our members, whether they are 10 or 28.

With winter approaching most YFC meetings across the country are now indoors but we believe this doesn’t mean the fun can’t continue. Here’s the meetings we have held this month.

  • Public speaking and pizza night (practising for our public speaking competitions)
  • Family fortunes
  • Family bonfire night to raise money for the club
  • Drive it Home Curve module (the first one in the country).

On weekends, we all get involved and spend time at our local Christmas tree farm in our shed, advertising and signing people up for tree recycling. 

Competitions we enjoy: 

As a club, we are very competitive and often have several teams in our county competitions. 

We think our results speak for themselves.

  • Sports competition – juniors won the Cricket and seniors came second in Volleyball
  • Public speaking – we dedicated some of our club meetings to practising and made it to the national finals last year with our Call my Bluff team.
  • We made it to the national finals in Jump Rope and Street Dance last year.

Our work in the community: 

Our members helped marshal Lutterworth’s remembrance parade and brought tractors and games to the light switch on where we raised money for our chosen charity Make 2nds Count.

Why we are Club of the Month: 

We piloted the new Drive it Home Curve module and our members took part in the filming to help promote the new workshop. It was an eye-opening evening, and we recommend the workshop to every club. 

Overall, we are a cracking club, with passionate members, lots to offer and something for everyone to enjoy and get involved in.

What the judges' said:

Lutterworth YFC did a great job of piloting the new Drive it Home workshop but we were also impressed with their contribution to helping promote the session to more clubs during Road Safety Week. We also loved the range of meeting ideas they provided for members and their involvement in community activities – especially during the festive season. Well done Lutterworth YFC.
