Committee member John Hare has thanked and praised the support from the community.

After a highly successful centenary show last year, there is considerable interest, but due to the closure of the village’s middle school this summer, the show was in danger of being without a venue.

But the committee came up with an enterprising solution – this year, the show will go back to its original roots and will be staged in an enormous marquee at Belford Golf Club.

Hiring a marquee is expensive so the committee is giving the whole village a chance to be involved in the show with the sale of Belford Show badges. On sale for a £1, each badge sold represents the sponsorship of a square foot of the marquee. They can be purcahsed from Belford Newsagents and Belford Community Shop.

The show will take place from 1.30pm on Saturday, September 29. For details, visit
