Garstang Show: Sun shines down as thriving agricultural show welcomes 'best turnout in years'

There was a huge turn-out for this year’s Garstang Show as the sun helped bring out the crowds.

This thriving agricultural show has been running since 1813 and is still a key event for the rural communities of Garstang and North West Lancashire.

Spectators were treated to a packed timetable of livestock classes and trade stands showcasing the best of local businesses during the event, which was staged yesterday (Saturday August 6).

There were also beautiful floral displays, handmade crafts and delicious, locally-produced food and drink to check out.

Laura Ockenden, marketing manager for the show, said: “These shows are still important to our rural communities because they showcase the important work of our farmers.

"It is vital that we support the farmers and all those who are responsible for our home-grown produce.

"We were delighted with the turnout, it was one of the best we’ve had in years – and the lovely sunshine didn’t do any harm!”
