THOUSANDS braved the rain and turned out to sample the sights and sounds of country life.

Caerwys Agricultural Show celebrated its 33rd year in style with top class entertainment from the Savage Skills mountain bike display team, vintage machinery and tractors and a host of livestock competitions.

Crowds flocked to the showground at Gatehouse Field, Babell, on Saturday.
Organiser Paula Spencer said the show attracted more than 2,000 visitors.

She said: “We had a downpour of rain which we thought would put a dampener on things, but the weather picked up and people came in slightly later than normal.

“We are more than happy with the day’s events. There was plenty to keep the children entertained and the adults as well.

“Everybody had a good time.”

Attractions included a poultry tent and competitions with classes for horses, floral art, photography and produce.

The Rotary Club of Holywell and Flint ran a roll a bale competition while a roll a barrel competition was held for youngsters.

Delyn MP David Hanson attended the show. He said: “Congratulations to everyone involved with this year’s show. It was great to see so many local people enjoying the event.”

Sandy Mewies, Delyn AM added: “It was an excellent show reflecting the hard work the organisers put in year on year.”
