THE rain may have swept in but it did not deter the crowds who flocked to Millom and Broughton Show.

Perennially regarded as one of the highlights of the year for the agricultural community in the south and west of Cumbria, this year was no exception.

Around one thousand people turned out to celebrate the best of the countryside at the show, which is now in its 133rd year.

As is always the case when the event takes place, the Millom and Broughton Show proved to be an occasion for people of all ages and farming families from around the area to get involved and show off the best of what Cumbria’s agricultural industry has to offer.

Among the events were Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling, vintage machinery, livestock, children’s entertainment and crafts.

Jeffery Maddock, the honorary director of the show, said attendees enjoyed themselves despite of the inclement weather.

“It was a great day for everyone who came along even if we had a few showers," he said.

“We made a few changes to the layout of the show and everyone seemed to respond really well."

Mr Maddock said all the usual favourites proved popular and one of the newer attractions, a dog show, was a particular hit with the crowds.
