Langholm will round off show season

A DRY day is forecast for Langholm Show on Saturday and the organisers are full steam ahead with the final preparations.

Tents and booths have gone up at the Castleholm showground and it’s nearly ready to welcome entrants and visitors.

Livestock judging and the horse classes will kick off the day, while there’ll also be some big decisions being made in the home industries and produce tent.

Meanwhile, showgoers can enjoy an open dog show and pet show in the morning, and browse an array of stalls and traders, meet the alpacas from Canonbie and pick up some handmade bargains in the craft tent.

For children there will be a funfair and inflatables.

There’s a full programme of entertainment lined up in the main ring for the afternoon.

It starts at 12 noon with the traditional Cumberland wrestling championships, followed by a demonstration by members of Annandale Flyball.

After the prize presentation, the pipe band will take to the field, followed by children’s sports, terrier racing, a tug-of-war and sheaf tossing.

At 5 pm there will be live music in the bar with Phil Mac.

New additions to this year’s show include a prosecco bar, a wool and shearing tent and freshly ground coffee stall.

Chairman Robin Vevers, above, says there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

He’s hoping for a good turnout and said: “It’s the final agricultural show of the season on one of the most picturesque showgrounds in the country.

“The team are working hard to get everything ready and we’d invite everyone to come along and enjoy the day.”
