Deep­ing Show a suc­cess

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

A SPEC­TAC­U­LAR show­case of farm­ing and coun­try­side pur­suits drew thou­sands to Mar­ket Deep­ing at the week­end.

Or­gan­is­ers of the Deep­ing Agri­cul­tural Show and Coun­try Fair were de­lighted the rain held off un­til late on Sun­day af­ter last year’s wash-out kept crowds away.

Ev­ery­thing from vin­tage trac­tors and a Bat­tle of Bri­tain fly-past to a grand pa­rade of sheep kept vis­i­tors en­ter­tained through­out the week­end as well as a host of ac­tiv­i­ties for young­sters.

The show raised money for Lin­colnshire and Not­ting­hamshire Air Am­bu­lance, Fen­land Rid­ing and St Barn­abas Lin­colnshire Hospice.

Pub­lic­ity co-or­di­na­tor Pauline Red­shaw said: “The 65th Deep­ing Show en­joyed good at­ten­dance. The com­mit­tee is grate­ful for peo­ple that brought an­i­mals to the show. There was an ex­cel­lent dis­play of vin­tage trac­tors and cars and an ar­ray of stalls.”

Lo­cal schools got in­volved in­clud­ing Deep­ing School’s model rail­way club.

The show also had a rous­ing dis­play by town criers from across the world pre­par­ing for the World Town Crier Cham­pi­onships in Ch­ester this week­end.

A farm owner was in­jured on Satur­day af­ter an in­ci­dent in a cat­tle pen. The com­mit­tee said they “deeply re­gret­ted” what hap­pened and their thoughts were with him and his fam­ily.
