  • We are the Champions

    We are the Champions!

    Worth Valley Young Farmers Club is on a winning roll at the moment.  After being victorious at the Craven District Rally in spring and collecting the Craig Coleman memorial Club of the year trophy in the process, our Fields of Vision team has recently won the tour de Yorkshire land art competition 2017 with “Branwell and the Bicycle” .

    Here below is the Welcome to Yorkshire press release about it.

     

    The winner of the Tour de Yorkshire Land Art competition has
    been unveiled as an image of Branwell Brontë riding his bicycle – in the year which marks his 200th anniversary.

     
    The iconic artwork was designed by Andrew Wood from Worth Valley Young Farmers Club's Fields of
    Vision team and created with help from schoolchildren in the heart of Brontë country
    – at Hawarth Primary
    School, where the image appeared.

     

    The artwork measured 80 X 65 metres was made using recycled
    materials including waste marquee carpet and 3,000 plant pots.

     

    Branwell’s head and hands were sprayed with grass-friendly
    paint, while pupils placed and pegged the plant pots into position on their
    school field to create the bike.

     

    This year, the Tour de Yorkshire Land Art competition drew almost
    4,500 public votes – a record breaking figure.

     

    On Wednesday (June 21), Sir Gary Verity, the race director of
    the Tour de Yorkshire, presented Andrew Wood, the Fields of Vision team and the schoolchildren with
    the 2017 Land Art trophy.

     

    Sir Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire,
    said: “This is a fitting winner as the image of Branwell riding his bicycle is
    a perfect tribute to two trademarks of Yorkshire – the Brontës and cycling.”

    Andrew Wood, team leader of Worth Valley Young Farmers Club’s Fields of Vision
    team, said: “Having co-organised Sue Ryder’s Brontë Sportive each July for 8 years I have always
    wanted us to do a land art that would link Haworth and cycling.

    “The fact 2017 marks both 200 years of Branwell
    and with the Tour de Yorkshire coming through the village this was the perfect time
    to do it.  We are delighted how it turned out and want to thank everyone
    who voted for us.”

  • Fields of Vision Rural Intelligence on schedule

    Worth Valley's YFC's crime fighting project is on schedule to go live in late March. Members voted last month on which logo the Fields of Vision project should have and work is now in full swing on the website that people will use to register.   
    The project will use the smart phone application WhatsApp together with community spirit to report suspicious activity and crime in a
    co-ordinated and real time manner. We now know that our members 13 years and over as well as people in the local rural community will be able to sign up to the conversation and that there are 256 places in the conversation in total.

    Worth Valley spokesman Joe Holmes said, “Our Young Farmers members felt that the level of crime in rural Worth Valley reached an all-time high in 2016 with criminals even targeting our local hospice.  Out of this came the Fields of Vision Rural Intelligence idea so that rather than just moaning about it we can hopefully work with the police to reduce it.”

    The project has been made possible due to support from the West Yorkshire Police Crime Commissioner’s Safer Communities Fund.

  • Fields Of Vision Idea Takes Hold

    An exciting project originating in the Worth Valley is among 47 schemes approved for the 100-day cultural festival leading up to the Grand Depart.The successful commissions for Yorkshire Festival 2014 are being officially revealed in Leeds today.Among them is Fields of Vision, a land art initiative building on an idea first put forward by the Worth Valley Young Farmers Club.It will be delivered by a partnership co-ordinated by Pennine Prospects, and will include huge land art installations across the South Pennines, including locations in Hainworth, Stanbury and along the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway.Local groups, schools and the wider community will be involved in sowing and cutting designs into a series of fields during the Spring.Andrew Wood, of Worth Valley Young Farmers, paid tribute to the Worth the Tour group, The Sports Turf Research Institute and Pennine Prospects, which enabled him and his colleagues to progress their idea.“It’s quite a coup for us to have this chosen, when only 47 out of 400 submissions were selected,” he said.“Millions of people all over the world will see these artworks.“A lot of the art will be created through sowing, which will be done when the weather is good enough.“Most of the designs haven’t been created yet, but we’ve chosen sites where the art will be visible from ground level, as well as from the air.We want this to be for local people – not just for the TV cameras and helicopters.Liz Barker, of Worth the Tour, a community group set up to co-ordinate local activities around Le Tour, said: “We’re very proud and excited one of the great projects we’re supporting has been selected as an official cultural festival event.“We’re now looking forward to helping bring the project to life. We know it’s going to be a huge attraction.”Pennine Prospects chairman, Pam Warhurst, said: “This land-art project brings together artists, young farmers, cyclists and the community to sew and weave original designs into the stunning South Pennines landscape.“The installations will grow and flourish during the festival to really put the South Pennines on the map during the Tour de France.”Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe, Bradford Council executive member for employment, skills and culture, said she was delighted that a project which originated in the Bradford district that involves so many organisations and sites has been chosen as part of the Yorkshire Cultural Festival. 
     “We're working with a number of organisations and groups to ensure that the Tour de France experience promotes the creativity and energy within the district,” she added.Yorkshire Festival 2014 is the world’s first cultural festival to run alongside the build-up to the Tour de France.The event begins on March 27, and is designed to promote the county’s artistic heritage and landscapes.It is the brainchild of Welcome to Yorkshire, and has been backed by Yorkshire Water, Arts Council England and Yorkshire local authorities.
