Ellemford Show organisers are hoping that the glorious weather they have enjoyed on show day over the past two years will be repeated this Saturday, September 24.

The main areas of attraction at the show are the sheep and industrial entrants, vintage tractor section, young handler’s competition, terrier racing and the dog trials.

Attractions also include a car boot sale, local trade stands, bouncy castle, a children’s roundabout, ice cream van, guess-the-weight stall and, as always, a well stocked bar! This year there is to be a new addition of a roaming acrobat to entertain visitors.

A very special trophy, the John Scott Memorial Trophy, has been kindly donated to the show this year and will be presented to the winner of the young handlers competition.

Following previous year’s success, there will be an after-show dance and children are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult. The dance starts at 8pm, admission £5 per person which includes a hog roast supplied by Oink, served at 8.30pm. ‘Pulse’ will provide live music and there is a complimentary bus to Cranshaws village, Longformacus and Duns after the show to return dance-goers home safely.
