CARDIGAN COUNTY Show’s switch from its traditional Wednesday slot to a Saturday looks to have paid dividends.

The sun shone and the car parks at Briscwm Fields were full as visitors flocked to the showground, where town and country come together.

Show secretary Delyth Williams said: “The guys on the gate say cars were full of families and there was a steady flow of people throughout the day.

“We also think there was more local people attending than usual rather than the reliance on midweek visitors. The weather also helped us a lot.”

In common with many other agricultural shows, the impact of regulations meant entries for some of the livestock classes were down, though several attracted bumper entries.

In his programme notes, chairman Aled Davies said: “This year, the show had to make one of its biggest decisions yet, which was to change the day of the show from a Wednesday to Saturday.

“I can assure you that this decision was not taken lightly and we faced no other choice as a result of the animal movement rules and the quarantine unit requirements.”
