It’s Showtime 2018!
The annual Rosedale Show was held on the Milburn Field on Saturday 18 August with good crowds enjoying the displays and events in breezy, sunny weather. Some scenes from around the ground:
Some fatherly advice before the judging.
Never too young to start.
A perennial favourite – the heavy horses judging.
In contrast, the smallest horses on show.
“I’ll have some of that, please.” At the church tea tent.
” Of course, it’s got a six and a half inch cylinder!”
For Your Eyes Only – the music, that is!
Man and Dog
Dogs everywhere – in and out of the judging ring.
More dogs – at the start of one of the hound trail races.
“That’s the winner!” In the ‘Any Continental Steer’ Class
The show could not be run each year without the sterling efforts of Sam Dring and her committee and all the volunteers who help put up and take down the showground, who man the gates and direct traffic – heartfelt thanks to them all.
Also, a reminder of the Rosedale Flower Festival in aid of the ‘Save Rosedale Abbey Church Appeal’ which will be in the church of St Mary and St Lawrence from 15 to 23 September with a Harvest Service and Supper at 6.00pm on Saturday 22 September – all are very much welcome.
