HUNDREDS of visitors were treated to sunshine and a wide variety of activities at the annual Hampton Ferry Show on Sunday.

The show has become a firm favourite in the local calander with many returning each year to enjoy what’s on offer.

And this year’s event was no exception with many enjoying the new sheep and pony agility attraction put on by Cath Brockie of Corran Dean.

Entertainment throughout the day proved popular with dance displays from the talented United Dance Academy bringing high energy whilst local vocalists Colin Pitts, Songster Griff and Eve Linton & Some People brought their own unique sounds.

The Dogs Trust dog show had both adults and children showing off their beloved pets and all were left delighted when they were awarded a rosette.

One of the highlights of the day was the presentation of a cheque for £700 to the Firefighters Charity from Diana Raphael.

She handed over the cash to Green Watch Commander Andrew Birch as a thank you for crews efforts in tackling the devastating fire at Raphaels Restaurant earlier this year

Organiser Fran Webb said: “We have so much talent in our town and so much community spirit it’s a pleasure to be involved in such a great family event.

“It’s especially rewarding to know everyone’s contribution is so appreciated as our visitors from outside of Evesham regularly comment on how much they have enjoyed themselves.”
