Picture Gallery: Rural show is a hit with visitors

It was a rural spectacular at the weekend as hundreds of people turned out for this year's annual Euston Park Rural Pastimes Event.

The 20th anniversary of the show, on Sunday, was a hit despite rain on the day and raised money for St Nicholas Hospice and a group of local parish churches.

Run entirely by volunteers, the day featured three show rings and the event's first sheep show and Dancing Digger.

Other attractions included a world war two memorial flight, Punch and Judy show and plenty of stalls and stands.

Organiser Giles Smith said: 'The weather did exactly as predicted and everything came to a sudden halt at one point but everybody was very stoic and the atmosphere was good. 'Everybody said it was wonderful despite the rain.

'The sheep show was also a highlight and absolutely fantastic. We had a chap from New Zealand who brought sheep from eight different countries and sheered with tremendous commentary.

'The general atmosphere was fantastic and the car park was full, with more people than usual, and we had 300 hits on the website which was good.'
