THE Pembroke Town and Country show returned with animals, stalls, displays and plenty of sunshine.

The show - which celebrated its 200th-anniversary last year - was held at the Lamphey Showground on Wednesday and saw record numbers come through the gate.

The annual one-day show was organised by the Pembroke Farmers’ Club and featured the usual attractions of cattle, sheep, horses, and much more.

Club Chairman, Chris James, said: “It is our first year after the 200-year celebration, we are on a wonderful site and it’s been a great day.

“We are showing everyone what is good about rural life, it’s good for the farming community to show people what we do.

“The farming community has become more fragmented over the years, it is great to have a day to bring people together.”

Mr Mervyn John, Mr Dennis Nicholas, Mr Peter Nicholas, Mr Mark Josey and Mr David Shipton all received long service awards

Pembroke Mayor Linda Brown said: “It is a fantastic show, with so much to see and do for all the family.

“The show has simply gone from strength to strength, and once again it has been extremely well organised with a wonderful atmosphere and fantastic variety.

“And the weather this year has been fantastic.”

Terence Neale, who displayed in the horticulture tent said: “We have had a very good day. It’s always a good show and it’s nice to see dry weather here.”
