AFTER a wet and windy start, the visitors came in their droves to ensure this year's Pymoor Show was the most successful yet. Organisers have spent the last 10 months working hard to make this 10 anniversary show, which was opened by South East Cambridgeshire MP Jim Paice, a special event. 120 exhibitors attended, providing an entertaining main arena programme, which resulted in almost 3000 people passing through the gates on the day.
"This year the show ran from 10am until 6pm and the whole day was packed with events for the whole family. While the theme is unashamedly agricultural, the organisers realise that they must have enough activities to keep the visitors busy all day, said a spokesperson for the show.
The exhibitors ranged from agricultural machinery companies through to individuals selling flowers and plants. The main ring included displays of western riding, gun dogs, local school children performing country dancing, ferret racing, dog agility and motor bike stunt riding.
A beer tent and other specialised breweries also had plenty of customers to sample local brewed real ales and cider.

The children were entertained by hands-on small animals and reptiles' zoo, a flea circus, Punch and Judy and magic show.
Mr Paice presented the trophies and prizes to the winners of the best agricultural trade stand - G.J. Peck, non-agricultural stand - Sustainable Fish, best field of sugar beet - N. Golding and Son and ear of wheat competition - S.R.N. Golding. He also gave words of encouragement to farmers and rural people/communities.
