WEATHER conditions may not have been perfect for the Ashwell Show on Monday but the stars of the show thought differently.
Show chairman Peter Long, said: "It was very good. Even though the weather reduced the number of visitors, it was perfect for the horses.
"As a result the show jumping didn't finish until 7.30pm, which was a first."
There was also a dog show, trade stalls, a falconry display, morris dancers and vintage cars to keep the crowds entertained.
