Your County Office Team
Julie Spink – County Co-Ordinator
Julie is a former Knaresborough YFC member from the olden days pre mobile phones, plasma screens and microwave dinners! She keeps in touch with her local club by helping out at the Tractor Run as a road marshal. Julie previously was a youth worker working across North Yorkshire and she also worked with people with learning disabilities in a horticultural setting.
Julie is a keen camper and has spent the night under canvas at Tan Hill in the snow and she also likes to utilise her YFC skills by competing at Ripley Show in the baking and handicraft sections. She’s keen to see YFYFC continue to thrive and develop.
Sarah Todd – County Marketing & Press Officer
Writing up reports for the local newspaper while a member of Kirkbymoorside YFC inspired farmer’s daughter Sarah to become a journalist. She is well-known in the county as the former editor of Yorkshire Life magazine as well as being one of the Yorkshire Post’s most popular columnists. She also writes for national newspapers and magazines (including Farmers Weekly!).
Sarah’s teenage children are young farmers. She’s keen to help spread the word about YFYFC and happy to talk to clubs about how to send press releases out and how members can be a bit more switched-on about getting their message across.
