…and a great day was had by all!
We’re delighted with the feedback we have been getting since Show day. We think we might have broken all gate records and entertained over 5,000 people. We had a wonderful day and had never seen the car park so full! The weather was perfect not too hot for people or animals.
The crowds were entertained by Joseph’s Racing Camels and Cyril the Squirrel Dog racing Terriers. Cyril allowing the watching dog owners to have a go themselves with hilarious results. Jez Avery the amazing motorbike stunt man had us holding our breath with his skills and Joseph’s Amazing Camels were terrific entertainment for all age groups.
Cattle, sheep & pig entries were all up this year . The horticultural tent did well considering the growing year has not been good. The poultry tent opened during judging for the first time which let the public watch how the judging was done. The free children’s entertainment included Circus Whiz the interactive circus skills workshop, Punch and Judy and face painting as well as the kiddies quad bikes and bouncy castle.
The dog scurry and fun dog show had record entries .
The trade stands offered a variety of goods and products. The winners of the Best Trade Stand competition were Rix Petroleum.
The vintage cars and tractors are always a good attraction for our visitors and gave a wonderful display. We were overwhelmed with entries for the Artisan Craft Marquee but did manage to squeeze in 34 exhibitors and it looked a picture.
I would like to thank all our exhibitors, sponsors and traders for making our show look so colourful with their wonderful displays and thank all our volunteers who come on the day to make the show the success it is. Thank you all and we hope to see you again next year.
