A village show that dates back to the 1960s enjoyed success when hundreds of people flocked to the grounds to enjoy beautiful horses on show, a Lancaster fly past and family fun.
The 54th Gorefield Show saw more visitors than ever enjoy the warm sunshine and the attractions on offer.
Show secretary Jo Mitchell said: “It went remarkably well. The horses were magnificent, numbers were up on the doors and the atmosphere was superb.
“With the number of local village shows dwindling rapidly we are proud to keep ours going.
“Last year’s show raised £4,000 which are ploughed back into village funds, and we hope to have topped last year’s total. A great success.”
