Imp-ressive start to County Show

First published in Milford Mercury news by

THOUSANDS poured through the gates for the first two days of Pembrokeshire's annual celebration of the countryside.

Visitors from throughout Wales travelled to Haverfordwest for the County Show, and made the most of the clear weather as they explored the packed showground.

One of the highlights of the Pembrokeshire calendar, this year's show was in the capable of hands of show president Dick Davies and his partner Margaret, while Tania Hancock took on the role of lady ambassador.

Among the attractions on Tuesday were the Welsh pony classes along with the ever-popular dairy and beef competitions.

In the Grand Arena, the Imps Motorcycle Display Team wowed with their daredevil stunts.

The Imps are Britain’s biggest motorcycle display team but with a difference – all the team are aged between five and 16 years of age.

Meanwhile, local YFC members gave a dramatic safety display, showing how first aid skills can save lives in an agricultural emergency.

On the music stage, local bands kept the crowds entertained, competing for the audience's attention with the ever-popular Sheep Show.

Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society Awards were presented in the President’s marquee on Tuesday afternoon, which included the coveted President’s Award, Scoveston Crops Award, Student of the Year, and NFU Pembrokeshire Idris Davies Memorial Trust awards.

A funfair, craft and gift stalls, and live demonstrations in the food hall provided plenty to see, do and taste in between competitions, and the perennial County Show land train provided visitors with a comfortable way to take in all the sights.
