BBC gives centenary appeal a flying start

Hemyock's Calf Club Centenary campaign got off to great start when a BBC Southwest news team came to the village and interviewed committee members and local farmers.

Two editions of the regional news included excellent coverage of our crowdfunding appeal, which aims to raise £40,000 to put a larger than life calf sculpture on the green at the foot of Pencross Hill.Reporter Rebecca Ricks interviewed Heather Stallard and Tim Martin and visited the calf shed at Collards Hill Farm, Blackborough to talk to three generations of the Doble family, whose ancestor was a founder member of the club.

The club eventually grew into the Young Farmers Club movement - and that's what we are celebrating. If you would like to support us with a donation please go to https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/calfclub
