The sun shone on Hayfield’s big day, as hundreds flocked to the village’s annual Country Show & Sheep Dog Trials.
The two-day extravaganza at Spray House Farm boasted bumper crowds on Saturday and Sunday, as well as enjoying healthy numbers of competition entries.
Alongside the traditional sheepdog trials, show-goers enjoyed a packed programme which included everything from shire horse displays to agility and obedience demonstrations by Chadkirk Dog Training Club and performances by the Knights of the Crusades.
Paul Bagshaw, chairman of the organising committee, said: “Everything went fantastic, and the weather was certainly in our favour. We spread the field out this year to offer more attractions, and it received a fantastic response.
“One surprise highlight was the giant tortoises in the pet show - they certainly made an impression on the younger visitors!”
Runners of all ages gathered for the traditional fell races, while afternoon entertainment was provided by Bavarian Oompah Band The Schunkler’s and Thornsett Band.
Profits this year will support the Macmillan team at Blythe House Hospice.
“We choose a different charity each year, and this is very important to us,” said Paul, who added his thanks to everyone who had supported the event, in particular hosts the Mellor family.
