THE annual Saltersgate Farmers Hunt Country Show has been declared ‘the best ever’.

Chairman Freda Cockerill said it had been a really good show with an increase in entries and people attending the event.

“We moved to the current venue two years ago and it has given the show a real boost,” she said.

“Everything was on the up this year - produce, horses and crafts - and the catering side did really well.”

Mrs Cockerill said a live auction had also been held with all profits from the show going to the Saltersgate Hunt.

She said: “We are so grateful for all the support we receive from people including the helpers on the day, the owner of the land and everyone who contributes to make the show such a success. It was a really good day and the best show ever.”
