EGGESFORD Hunt Supporters’ Club held a very successful Country Show at Crooke Meadow, North Tawton, on Sunday, June 17.

There were dozens of entries in the terrier, lurcher and family dog show classes and many in the all-day scurry racing.  There was a top prize of £100 for the supreme winner of the dog show and some classes were qualifiers for Buckham Fair, amongst other qualifiers.

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

A barbecue, bar and music from “The Honest John Band”, cream teas, bouncy castle, slide and face painting meant 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 and many food options including burgers and hot dogs and cream teas.

Added attractions which proved popular were the chance to enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides and trailer trips around the Den Brook wind farm turbines.

Susie and Mims, the show administrators, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to our 50 plus volunteers who gave their time to support the smooth running of the show and made the day a huge success.

“It involved fantastic team work.

“The day would really not have been possible without everyone helping and we estimate that more than 1,000 visitors came through the game to enjoy the show.

“Please save the day for the Country Show next year, which will be Sunday, June 16, 2019, also at Crooke Meadow, by kind invitation of the Tucker family.”

Donations from the profits from the Country Show will be made to the Friends of Bow and North Tawton Surgeries and the Eggesford Hunt.
