The show celebrated its tenth year and raised £10,000 for the Air Ambulance, Magpas and other local charities – taking the fundraising total since it began to £42,000.

Gavin Booth said: “We received great feedback throughout the day, with many people saying it was the best show yet and they couldn’t wait to till next year’s show.

“It was definitely the biggest yet. The committee would like to thank all those that helped over the weekend and the various sponsors, that helped make the show a success.”

“Planning has already started for the 2017 show which will be held on the July 15 and 16.”
