Tockwith Show will go on

Tockwith Show will go on

Published at 8:28pm 4th August 2017.

Organisers of Tockwith Show say it's going ahead as planned on Sunday.

The assurance comes after other events have been cancelled because of recent wet weather.

This year's show will feature demonstrations from one of the UK's leading dog agility performers, 22-year-old Jess Clarehugh (pictured).

The packed programme also includes heavy horses, a vintage tractor parade, a children's fancy dress competition and a pub tug of war.

Show co-chairman Sam Blacker said: "Jess Clarehugh has competed for Great Britain on a number of occasions around the world, so it's fantastic to be able to welcome her to the show this year.

"She's based just down the road from us near Wakefield and runs lessons near Tockwith, so she has good links to the local area. We're expecting her to be a big hit with our visitors."

The show will have its own church service in a marquee at 10.30am, as well as a full programme of classes and demonstrations in the six rings.

Dog owners will have the chance to get a free health check for their pet, thanks to two vets joining Miss Mollies dog rescue charity, which is the nominated charity for the Companion Dog Show being run under Kennel Club rules.

Local farmer and Tockwith Show committee member Tom Hildreth will be returning with one of his dairy cows to help local children understand how milk is produced.

The popular Farmers' Market marquee will again feature numerous local businesses selling produce grown and made in the Tockwith area.

As well as cookery demonstrations by chef Robert Ramsden, the marquee will host bread-making workshops for the whole family throughout the day.

Following a day of competitions, classes and displays, the famous President's Auction will see entries sold off to raise money for show president Richard Search's two chosen charities, Saint Michael's Hospice and Follifoot Park Disabled Riders Group.

Mr Blacker added: "Every year, we add new names to our line-up and introduce new elements to the show. However, at its heart, Tockwith Show remains the same.

"We aim to educate visitors about rural life, to support local farmers and producers, and to provide a good value, quality day out for the whole family.

"We're looking forward to welcoming new and returning visitors again this year."

Tockwith Show takes place on Cattal Moor Lane, Tockwith, YO26 7QH.

Tickets are £10 per adult on the gate, whilst accompanied children aged 16 and under go free.
