Some of Campbeltown Young Farmers’ newest recruits mucked in at their first event on Saturday.

Some of the nine youngsters who signed up to join the group at a recent new members’ night helped out at a coffee morning in Campbeltown Town Hall on Saturday.

The event featured an extensive raffle, homebaking and a bottle stall.

Some potential future members enjoyed juice and biscuits at the event, while their parents sipped tea and coffee.

Everyone aged 14 to 30 is welcome to join Campbeltown Young Farmers, whether a farmer or not, and organisers say it is a great way of making new friends.

A spokesperson said: ‘Thank you very much to everyone who came along and supported our coffee morning. We raised a fantastic £594.94 for the club.’
