Plenty of folk flocked to the Walls and District Annual Show today to enjoy a packed programme of food, fun and competitions.

Walls and District Agricultural Society secretary Debra Nicolson, said there was a good turnout with attractions including Shetland ponies, cows, hens and  sheep.

There was also face painting, baking competitions, and photography contests.

For the first time this year, given the bad weather, fruit and vegetable entries were accepted on the day, giving the maximum growing time for entries.

Debra added: “It was a good turnout …the weather was so good. That is probably the best turnout that we’ve had for a couple of years.”

“People were still coming in through the gate after three o’clock,” she said.

Tomorrow there will be vintage cars on display. The event starts at noon.
