Secretary Alison Grose said: “The committee work very hard every year to get the show to be one of the most popular around.

“With working classes for livestock, farm crops, fruit and veg, children’s cookery, floral art, photo’s eggs, and crafts – there is something for everyone to enter.

“Some take it seriously, but mainly it is about the farming and public communities coming together for a fun-filled day.”
