"It was a great day and we were very pleased to see a lot of people come to see everything we had on at the show," show secretary Sarah Davidson said.

"The weather held out for us and there were plenty of smiles throughout the day.

"We were told by everyone on the day how great it was and we have seen a lot of positive comments on social media.

"The amount of praise really makes it worth the effort and stress of organsising it and to see it being appreciated.

"It was great to be back and finally having the event after having a break because of Covid.
