A new generation of Soham Young Farmers have been getting their hands dirty through a special tree planting session near the town.

It was 22 years ago that the former Soham branch of the organisation closed but now a new band of volunteers have started the club up again with a mixture of activities, trips, talks, farming-related competitions and social events.

As well as the tree planting the group has already organised a halloween party and next year hopes to hold a ploughing match, clay shoot as well as a more formal dinner dance.

It meets on Wednesdays at 7.30pm at Soham Town Rangers Football Club.
