All the fun of the show

HUNDREDS of people enjoyed the best of the countryside at Langholm Show on Saturday.

The 166th show, which is the last agricultural show of the summer locally,  was graced with good weather.

There was plenty to occupy visitors, from terrier racing, Cumberland wrestling, kids’ sports, sheaf tossing and a vintage parade in the main ring, to a packed industrial tent, children’s entertainment, music from Langholm Pipe Band and an array of livestock competing for prizes.
