YOUNG FARMERS BACK WITH £2M BOOST
11:00 - 19 April 2007
The Young Farmers will be back in the resort next week for their annual conference bringing an estimated £2 million into the Bay's economy.
More than 3,500 delegates from the National Federation of Young Farmers are expected for the three-day convention which starts at the Riviera International Conference Centre on Friday April 27.The visitors will be tucking into food sourced from the South West as they debate meaty topics such as climate change and food and tourism among other topics.Tourism bosses say the conference is an important boost for the Torbay economy and will ensure tourism businesses continue the great start to the season they enjoyed over Easter.
The above is from the local paper. Below is from me.
The Young Farmers were here 4 years ago and the 3 days they spent here were memorable for their attempts, successful in a lot of cases, to lowering the tone of the place and just about everyone said NEVER AGAIN. They were here last year and their behaviour was much improved after strong warnings but some hotels are still refusing to take them in and after several incidents on buses around the Bay I wish I could refuse to carry them.
But still, cash is what matters.
