This years Zilla Cookes Bursary Award has been presented to Josh Cox.
This is what he had to say:
Dear Fillongley Agricultural Society
Thank you so much for awarding me the Zilla Cookes Bursary Award.
It means a lot to be given the money that will help me through my studies in agriculture at Reaseheath College, Nantwich.
The money will be spent wisely on getting a new laptop to help with writing assignments and the remainder will be put aside.
As for what I am doing at college: I have recently passed my telehandler licence, I am working towards my quad bike test
plus a health and safety certificate. All whilst continuing to work towards respectable grades in my assignments.
I would like to thank you again for choosing me to be awarded the bursary.
ANNUAL QUIZ 2018
Our Annual Quiz was held on Wednesday evening at the newly refurbished Fillongley Social Club and was very well attended. There were twenty teams of four, six of them Young Farmers teams (Coleshill, Fillongley and Meriden), which we are very pleased about, so thank you to all of those who came along. Winner of the trophy was Kenilworth & District Agricultural Society (KADAS) who are not strangers to winning! Coleshill Young Farmers 1st Team and Young Farmers Old Oaks came joint first for the Young Farmers trophy. Well done all.
We would like to thank Peter and Shiela Fletcher for their kind donation of Berkswell Cheese which was enjoyed with our Ploughmans Supper, including Rowleys’ wonderful sausage rolls and pork pies and the excellent bread from Gaytons of Grendon.
The raffle raised £176 and was donated to Myton Hospice, as requested by the winning team.
A great social event, well attended and enjoyed by all (hopefully). Very little heckling this year so hopefully that means most people were happy. See you next March, quizzers.
