IT is more often a fear that rain might keep people away from Burwarton Show but this year a greater concern was that heat and humidity might be a deterrent.

But if the crowds that packed the showground are anything to go by this was not the case.

People from all over the country came to this popular event.

The show had plenty for all of the visitors, be they farmers looking to do business or families enjoying a day out.

Livestock, cattle, sheep and pigs remained at the heart of the show.

One of the big challenges for the exhibitors on the day was keeping the animals cool in the stifling heat.

There were displays of sheep shearing and the farmers of the future entertained and enchanted with a display of sheep handing.

Many people enjoyed the stalls including crafts and demonstrations. There was a programme of entertainment on the ‘Village Green.’

It was a good day for the many sellers of food and drink with a wide choice ranging from traditional burgers with locally supplied meat to various types of seafood.

Vintage tractors, shire horses and fancy dress were part of a packed programme of events in the main ring.

During the day there were displays in the main ring from the Squibb Freestyle Stunt Motorbike team.

Watching crowds held their breath as riders went through the air in displays of aerial ballet that at times involved up to three machines at the same time.

There was plenty for children to enjoy including the opportunity take a tour of the showground in a Thomas the Tank Engine style train. Visitors to the show included Ludlow MP Philip Dunne.
