However, over the previous years members have enjoyed raising the funds with: Tractor Runs; Providing refreshments for Tractor Runs; Ploughing Matches; Harvest Balls; Coffee Shop; County Clay Shoot; Countryfile Ramble; Firework Parties and Barn Dances. As well as supporting many local events and charities from Soap box racing; Open Farm Sunday; Armed Forces Day; Carnivals; Raft Racing; Operation Christmas Child and helping out in Bath serving hot food to the homeless.
Regular Club programmes have also been full with evenings learning disco dancing; Jump Rope; Farm Safety Training; Flower Arranging; Cooking; Public Speaking; Carol Singing; Skittles; Trampolining; Stock judging; Calf Handling; Lambing; Scavenger Hunting; Hedge laying and Fence erecting, along with the numerous Farm visits across the County and beyond.
