Hello! I’m Rosie, the Lincolnshire County Chair for the upcoming year! I am a member of Horncastle YFC, however due to my job I actually live nowhere near Horncastle! I am the Assistant Hatchery Manager of a chicken hatchery near Scunthorpe, for PD Hooks, producing approximately 1.3 million chicks per week. When I’m not busy with work or YFC, I love to play hockey and cricket and walk my dog, Henry the rescue Greyhound.
I have given most roles in YFC a go over the years. Almost every club role there is, including Chair and Secretary at the same time! I have also been youth forum coordinator, competitions coordinator and county vice chair at a county level. And my biggest role to date was being the National Youth Forum chair, one of 5 steering groups that makes up the national federation! This has taken me across the country and continent preaching about how amazing Yfc is! I’m looking forward to an amazing year ahead with the team!

County Vice Chair
Hi, my name is Jack Cullen. I’m 21 years old, I’m born and bred in Heckington and I am club Secretary for Heckington and Sleaford YFC. My parents met through YFC so it was inevitable I would become a member. I have heard so many cringe worthy and entertaining stories as I grew up. My Dad was county Chairman so I will be proud to be able to follow his legacy.
I work in agriculture as an Omnia Field Technician for Hutchinson’s Crop Production Specialists. I spend my day at either the office at Wittering or out on farm across the country. In my spare time I play Hockey for Leadenham Hockey Club Men’s 1st team as a midfield/forward. My greatest achievement in YFC so far was winning the YFC National Hockey Finals this year for Lincolnshire YFC with a great group of friends. I also enjoy the chance to shoot and bush beat during the winter with my Labrador Ivy. I am looking forward to visiting the Lincolnshire YFC clubs and members this forthcoming year as County Vice Chairman and am looking forward to a great year.
County Vice Chair
I qualified in Land Based Engineering at Riseholme College in 2014, working on farms in between times. I have been employed in agricultural contracting for 4 years and as a plant engineer for 6 years.
Previously I’ve been a member of Notts YF for 4 years before joining Lincs YF 2 years ago. You may well find me behind the scenes at parties and events, providing sound and power. These events have given me some of my best YF’s memories.
Job: The Butcher of Bardney
Interests: Home brewing cider, DIY
Started YFC at 16, progressed through club to county.
Loves a fancy dress!
I’ve worked for Lincs YFC since June 2017 and it’s flown by. It’s a great job as I get to work with so many vibrant young people and I love helping them upskill and become more confident. The social side of the job is brilliant and I love nothing more than to spread the word about what a fantastic organisation it is. Highlights of the year are the rally and the Lincolnshire Show, plus our County
AGM where we get to celebrate the achievements of our members.
In my non YFC time I have a small livery yard at home, coach riding and try to find time to ride and compete myself!
