Decent crowds, a good atmosphere and even a dry, sunny day – Alwinton Border Shepherds’ Show proved a fitting finale to the show season.

Saturday’s event, the last one in the north Northumberland show calendar, went down a treat, with organisers branding it a success. Offering fun for all the family, there was plenty of entertainment for showgoers of all ages.

Some of the highlights included terrier racing, an open dog show, duck herding and Cumberland and Westmorland Wrestling.

In the sheep display, 12-year-old James Smith, from Bonchester, took the overall show championship with his South Country Cheviot.

There was a fine collection of exhibits in the craft tent while the trade stands proved popular with punters.Cancer-patient care charity, Daft as a Brush, sponsored the fell races, while there was music from Rothbury Highland Pipe Band.

Show secretary Bessie Rogerson said: “It was a good day. The weather was on our side and I think people stayed at the show for longer. There was a good crowd. A lot of people also commented on how good the atmosphere was. The trade stands did really well and the majority said that they want to come back. They nearly sold out in the beer tent too.”
