Public flock to another successful sheep fair

A STELLAR programme of attractions and around 250 well-groomed sheep drew the crowds at another successful Findon Sheep Fair on Saturday.

The annual event, on Nepcote Green, is always a crowd-drawer, and this year was no different, as a wide variety of shows, stalls and activities kept visitors entertained.

Falconry displays, a dog and duck show and sheep judging were the highlights, and organisers were relieved that the weather held-off for the event to avoid being a ‘washout’.

Organiser Simon Stace said: “Last night, I didn’t think the rain was going to stop. I thought it would be a washout.

“But fortunately, it’s held-off, and it has been a good day.

“It’s a nice event for everybody, not for one particular age group.”
