FEARS that 10 months planning would go to waste disappeared when the Pymoor Show went ahead on Saturday.

Like most places, Pymoor had seen torrential rain and the showground was so boggy that organisers were concerned that the show would have to be cancelled.

A band of club and committee members carried a livestock marquee to a field almost half a mile away to ensure the show would be a success.

The weather took a turn for the better with sun and drying wind and the show had the highest turnout for years.

Visitors enjoyed dog shows, ferret racing, trade stands, Harley Davidson demonstrations, a horse show, clay pigeon shooting, trade stands and a craft marquee.

Brave volunteers laid on the grass for a trials bike stunt demonstration and country music was provided throughout the afternoon by Eel Pie.

Money was raised for the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution, East Anglian Children's Hospice and The Eaton Foundation which supports the families of children with Osteogenesis imperfecta, also known as Brittle Bone Disease.
