Another wonderful day at Whittingham Show despite the very cold and windy conditions.
The crowds arrived and the entertainment began from the delightful dog show to the competitive athletics; from the raucous Pinch and Judy Show to the delicate chain saw sculpture; from the excellent sheep show to the wonderful exhibition marquee.
Yes it was a great day but only made possible by a small team of dedicated volunteers who have held fund raising events, been models on a catwalk and arrived on Show Day at 6 o'clock in the morning to make sure Whittingham Show was a suceess.
The display in the main Exhibition Marquee was once again a triumph - from the fabulous Dahlias to the delicious cakes; from the superb photographs to the wonderful array of children's entries. There was an amazing total of 870 entries in the Show tent and all from people living in the area.
The Sheep Show had a record number of entries and seems to be growing bigger every year; the dog show had another excellent turn out and the Athletics were again very competitive.
So my thanks go to everyone who helped make Whittingham Show another success and to everyone who attended, I hope you enjoyed the day as much as I did.
See you next year on the 15th August.
