Members of Stretton Young Farmers celebrated the group’s 70th anniversary with a dinner at the Park Royal Hotel in Warrington. Jim Whitlow, one of the founders of the group, was at the event, with around 260 current and former members.

Organiser Ceri Strachan, who is one of two current chairs of the group, said: ‘It’s a really great thing to be involved with – there’s a good social group and you can learn a lot. You don’t even have to have a farming background. I haven’t, I just love the outdoors.
