A prominent member of Keyston Young Farmers Club, Tanya Hancock, aged 25, has been selected as the Pembrokeshire rally queen for 2018.

Holding a first class honours degree in business studies from the Pembrokeshire College, Tanya is employed as a company secretary for Camrose Hardware – a part of the family business which includes Stephen Hancock Concrete Products – which was established some 15 years ago.

A YFC member since she was old enough to join, she participates in most of the activities of her 50-strong club and thoroughly enjoys all that the movement has to offer.

She is particularly hopeful that in this, Keyston’s 75th year, that the members will win the rally.

“We have come second once!” she reminds me.

The Hancock family have very strong connections with the YFC movement and Keyston club of which Tanya’s grandfather, the late William Hancock, was a founder member and two of her aunts, Janet and Margaret, have both previously been chosen as YFC queens.

Her selection was announced at a dance at Clarbeston Road following a recent very successful county federation field day held at Lower House, Spittal.

On Rally Day – Saturday, May 26 – at the County Showground, Tanya’s attendants will be Martha Perkins, South Pembs club; Georgie Radmore, Clynderwen, and Ffion Edwards and Christina Morgan, both of Llysyfran. The 2018 male ambassador is Charlie George, Fishguard.
