Ingram Show 2013

Ingram Show continues to flourish with visitor numbers and show entries remaining steady. It seems our visitors really enjoy the show's rural flavour and traditional events. We were lucky with the weather once again, as it stayed bright and sunny all day.

In the Horticultural and Industrial Tent 

A good level of entries once again, particularly in the photographic sections, and the standard was high.                               

Floral entries                          Children's craft entries 

 A great year for apples 

Dog Show

Always popular, a good level of entries from dogs of all sizes. Must make sure the grass is cut next year!

Small but perfectly formed?     Lined up for judging

Sheep judging

Standards as high as ever and a good number of entries in the sheep classes, the heart of a country show.

And finally.......

The tatty dig has now become a tradition at Ingram Show and takes place on Sunday. The wet and windy weather drove everyone into the marquee but spirits not in the least dampened
