The weather gods were benevolent in Glanton on Saturday and the crowds enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon in this most scenic of locations.
There were strong entries in the exhibition marquee, including some great floral displays – the sweet peas especially wafting wonderful scent around the tent.
There was much to see on the show field. The main attraction in the ring was a display of gun dog training and basic dog training.
The West Percy Hunt brought some of their hounds from the kennels at Beanley and many of the children had a great time getting up close to the hounds.
The hill race had an excellent entry and the winner ran an extremely quick time, coming home more than a minute ahead of the second runner.
As well as the various commercial stands and craft displays, there was a good selection of classic cars ranging from the 1930s onwards, a fire engine and crew, some very cute looking alpacas, a children’s funfair, face painting, storytelling and kiddies sports.
The pony sports were very popular and terrier racing Glanton-style proved as hilarious as usual.
At the prizegiving at the end of the show, one competitor was heard to tell show president Susan Collingwood-Cameron, as she presented him with one of the magnificent silver cups, that this was the 67th year he had entered Glanton Show.
