Sun shines on Gillingham and Shaftesbury Show
VISITORS to this year’s Gillingham & Shaftesbury Show at the Turnpike Showground near Motcombe basked in warm sunshine all day on Wednesday, a welcome change from last year when rain turned the venue into a mud bath.
The cream of local livestock was on parade, and there were more than 500 trade stands.
The main ring audience was treated to performances by the Bolddog Lings Freestyle motorcycle display team, scurry racing, heavy horses, scurry racing and horse jumping.
Show secretary Sam Braddick said: “Numbers were up on last year, not surprisingly given the weather, and everyone was saying how much they were enjoying the show.”
