At 7pm on the 1st June at Coultas Farm, Great Habton we are hosting the Swede Shear. A speed shear and party in honour of the Robert ‘Swede’ Stephenson Trust by kind permission of the Bulmer family. The event will consist of a shearing competition, comprising of an open and a young farmers class and finish with a party, music provided by ‘DJ Jarmuz’. Food and drink will also be available.
We are organising this event as we knew Swede from our school, rugby and university days. It has been a brain child of ours for some time as we wanted to raise money in honour of our close friend. Finding a different way to raise money was the challenge as many other friends have already undertaken a wide variety of challenges in Rob’s memory. However, nobody has yet organised a shearing event so we thought it was perfect! A great chance to get together and have some fun, whilst also spreading the good name of the trust.
‘Laugh. Live. Learn. Play.’
