VISITORS flocked to Glyn Ceiriog at the weekend to see the trials and tribulations of the Ceiriog Valley Show.

The show, held every year, is a celebration of all things rural, with sheepdog trials, sheep shearing, vintage machinery, and many more rural pursuits available to be enjoyed.

There is also a competitive aspect to the show, with sheepdog trialling and sheep showing all having competition.

Katie Harold, secretary for the show, said: “It’s the main community event for the valley. We’re a farming community so the event is a celebration of the farming community.

“The way the whole valley comes together, everyone plays a role. Everyone has a job and gets on with it.

“It’s about trying to move with the times as well, bringing in points of interest but maintaining the agricultural side.”

Councillor Trevor Bates said: “There are a lot of traditional events, such as sheep shearing and sheepdog trials.

“We’re quite spoilt up here, we have one woman who has come all the way from California to take part. So much stuff goes on.”
