EGGESFORD Hunt Supporters’ Club held a very successful Country Show at Crooke Meadow, North Tawton, on Sunday, June 16.

There were dozens of entries in the terrier, lurcher and family dog show classes and many in the all-day scurry racing.

There were vintage tractors and lorries, stationary engines, classic cars and motorcycles on display.

A barbecue and bar were kept busy, there were teas available throughout the afternoon.

Music from “The Hummingbirds” was greatly enjoyed.

The bouncy castle and many of the stalls went under cover in barns, and there was also face painting.

There was a lot to see and do at the one-day show.

There were children’s games, a tombola, many trade stands, a grand draw.

Popular were the trailer trips around the Den Brook wind farm turbines.

Interesting to see alongside the current North Tawton fire appliance was the now privately-owned former North Tawton fire appliance.

The 1978 Dennis D fire appliance served from that date in North Tawton and went out of service in 1994.

It is now owned by Dave Northcott and Graham Isaac from Torbay, who were pleased to return to North Tawton with the fire appliance, which had not been to the area for 30 years.

There were dozens of entries in the ferret classes.
