This year’s Kent County Show is due to finish in a few hours - but you wouldn’t think so by the number of people still arriving at the showground at Detling.
They are encouraged by this afternoon’s bright sunshine, after a wet start to the day.
Show organiser Lucy Hegarty said: “It was wet at first, but there’s been quite a lot of wind which has helped to lift it off.
“There are lots of people here and everything’s going really well.”
Mrs Hegarty said that the Kent Agricultural Society was “pleased” with the turnout but would not release official gate numbers until next week.
Today’s visitors have been able to partake in a Gardeners Question Time Roadshow, listen to music from the FB Pocket Orchestra and watch displays by the Warrenby Gundogs and the goats’ grand parade of livestock.
Still to come in the final hours are the presentation of awards in the 25m UK Pole-Climbing Championship, the steam engines and tractors’ final display, dancing from the Kettlebridge Clogs and the Young Farmers Grand Parade.
Experienced show-goers always stay in till the closing bells, knowing that there are often bargains to be picked up from the flower tent, the soft fruit show and the wine and cheese marquee at the last minute.
