A great effort was put in from all the girls who came along to Machars Young Farmers netball night at Port William on Thursday, July 13, despite the weather.

Thanks again go to Debbie Johnstone and Dib Penrose for providing their expert coaching.

Hopefully, next time we can prove to Debbie that the sun can shine in the port.

On July 15, Machars Young Farmers spent their Saturday afternoon a little differently!

Despite the freezing cold water, members had a great laugh at Galloway Activity Centre’s ‘Wobbly Waterpark’ at Lochken.

It proved a perfect outing for Alastair Cannon to show off his signature Tom Daley-esque dives into the loch and for Rose Nash and Emma Robinson to prove they both have the balance of a newly-born deer!

On Sunday, July 17, Machars Young Farmers held a sports night at Maxwell Park in Port William, with support coming from as far away as Dubai for the home team.

With a great attendance, the night was kicked off with a game of hockey, moving onto football, before the hockey sticks were used as golf clubs. It was all rounded off well ... with a game of rounders.

Taking part in the Young Farmers’ fun day out were: John Walker, John Cousar, Emma Robinson, Fay Wallace, Rose Nash, Kerrin Forsyth, Axel Prunier-Duparge, Sarah Walker, Aaron Walker, Steven McKinnel, Alastair Cannan, David Adams and Garry McKnight.

Taking part in the young farmers sports night were: Kerry Roddie, Claire Cannon, Garry McKnight, John Walker, Bruce Walker, John Cousar, Sam Mactier, Archie Walker, Jac-David Causer, Alan Oxley, Donald Robinson, Samantha Partidge, Ella Wallace, Emma Pollard, Joanne Wallace, Fiona Roddie and Ellie Mactier.

This week, the annual Sheep Stockjudging takes place at Larg Farm, Creetown, on Friday, July 21, from 7.30pm, followed by the charity coffee afternoon on Saturday, July 22, at Wigtown Food Festival Marquee, from 1-3.30pm.
