Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

THE best of Bucks was out on pa­rade last week as the county’s ru­ral champions gath­ered for their an­nual show.

With more that 60 cat­tle classes and over 30 sheep classes some of the coun­try’s best live­stock was on dis­play at the Bucks County Show on Au­gust 30.

The event at Wee­don Park also fea­tured around 80 equine classes and in­cluded qual­i­fiers for the Horse of the Year Show and the Royal In­ter­na­tional Horse Show.

The Home and Gar­den mar­quee was filled with en­tries from peo­ple demon­strat­ing their skills in cook­ing, wine mak­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, flower ar­rang­ing, hand­i­crafts and flower and veg­etable grow­ing.

There were also more than two hun­dred trade stands, a shop­ping mar­quee, a new larger food hall, a ru­ral craft mar­quee and an en­ter- tain­ing coun­try­side area with demon­stra­tions show­ing the ru­ral way of life in­clud­ing vin­tage trac­tors and the ever pop­u­lar Sheep Show.

One of the high­lights of the day was a dis­play by the Metropoli­tan Po­lice Mounted Branch. The Metropoli­tan Po­lice Ac­tiv­ity Ride led by In­spec­tor Danny But­ler, was a fast mov­ing dis­play demon­strat­ing inch per­fect tim­ing, to­tal com­mit­ment and pro­fes­sion­al­ism.
