We have recently completed our float for the Shropshire show with the theme of children’s television programmes, as a club we choose Scooby Doo! Our float was crowned the winner at the annual competition at the Shropshire show on 25th may 2019, with the third win in a row for Wem YFC!! We have always excelled in float building with a high reputation to uphold generated by our advisory and parents therefore with the apprehension gathering we began the building of ours 8 weeks prior to the show!

With many local businesses getting involved the majority of our materials were sponsored including timber, paint and electrical equipment to create the mystery, including support form Browns of Wem, Reeves of Wem, Bromborough Paints, Dulux Decorators Centre, Edward Mason Steel Fabrication, Transform Design and Build, the computer factory, Adrian Marsh, Central Fire Control, Eagle Tyres.

When building our float we aim to gain as much sponsorship as possible in order to increase our contribution to our chosen charity, this year we are raising money for Hope House Children’s Hospice which is a charity very close to many of the members within the club. We are heading to Shrewsbury Carnival on the 15th June and we will also be in the Wem carnival at the beginning of September where you can view our float for yourselves and donations can be made to our chosen charity.

Without our dedicated members and advisory this years triumph and amazing float would not have been possible!
