CROWDS flocked to Cambridgeshire Young Farmers County Show.

The vast array of stalls and displays, together with the warm weather at the weekend, attracted a large number of people to the show, now in its ninth year, at Wimpole Home Farm.

Laura Neal, a member of the show's organising committee, said: "The weather turned out really well for us and we had more trade stands and displays than last time. For me the highlight was the space hopper race which took place in the main ring."

Visitors were also entertained by terrier racing, a gun dog display, and a troupe of Spanish horse riders, while a wide variety of food and drink was available.

Cambridgeshire Young Farmers county chairman Will Shephard said: "It was a fantastic day and a great turnout.

"Young Farmers arranged the entire show and I'd like to thank everyone on the organising committee.

"I personally enjoyed the competitions which took place throughout the day.

"The quality of entries in events such as flower arranging was very high.
