Today Beds YFC held their annual public speaking and member of the year event. The turn out by all of the clubs was fantastic with more teams entered than we have had for quite a few years.
There were eight junior public speaking teams (for this the members have to be sixteen or under) and the judges were incredibly impressed at the standard of speaking that they judged. 
The results were as follows: 
6th – Biggleswade
5th – Bedford
4th – Blunham
3rd – Leighton Buzzard
2nd – Woburn
1st  – Silsoe
Best Speaker – Silsoe

The junior readers also did brilliantly today. They all had a passage from the book ‘Warhorse’ which they read in front of two judges (to enter this competition you have to be 14 and under):
