What better way to spend a sunny afternoon, than with friends enjoying tea, cakes and some fun and games!

A big draw for the day was of course the Family fun Dog which had great support for all its twelve groups and the Dog Agility once again proved to be great fun.

The sheep racing was once again a popular favourite with the betting hotting up as the afternoon progressed

There were many side shows with the ‘Smash The Plates’ and Coconut Shy being very popular along with The Tombola and Grand Prize Draw. The Second Hand Clothes, Bric-a-Brac and Plant stalls were also very well supported.
