THE annual Tockwith Show saw thousands of people turn out in the sunshine for the usual competitions, rural events, and locally-sourced food and produce.

About 8,000 people attended the show, now in its 67th year, with more than 80 stalls on show, and the weather managed to stay fine.

Steve Ross, secretary of the show, said: "It's gone very well, but a bit breezy. The inter-pub tug of war between the Spotted Ox and the Boot & Shoe was brilliant.

"The crowd loved it, it was one of the best things we've done. There was a lot of effort, a lot of big men and a lot of pain."

Mr Ross said the cast and crew from an upcoming CBeebies show Me And My Pet were also at the show, covering an entry by a local family for a programme to be broadcast next year.

He said: "The turnout has been very good and everyone is having a great time and we'll get planning more of the same but better for next year."
