This Saturday (September 28) is gearing up to be a fantastic relaunch of the Ellemford Show after last years wash out.

The show, organised by the Lammermoor Pastoral Society, will include several bouncy castles for the children to explore along with terrier racing, vintage tractor showing, sheep judging and sheep dog trials! And not to mention the bar is open all day!

Farmers from all over the Scottish Borders will be bringing their entries in the hope of winning one of the many Ellemford show cups, donated generously from various supporters of the show over the 126 years it has been running. It’s just a donation to enter this family-friendly show and enjoy all we have to offer.

With wood working and metal working stalls from local craftsmen, car boot sale and stalls with handcrafted gifts and fair trade products, there’s plenty to choose from. The industrial tent has a wide variety of baked goods and vegetable competitions which are then auctioned off at the end of the show.

There is a Robertsons mini bus leaving Duns Square at 11am on the Saturday morning to take visitors to the show ground completely free of charge, and returning at 4pm, that is if you can be dragged away from the beer tent.

This years show is set to continue on into the night as we are holding an after dance in the marquee, with hog roast by Adam Marshall of ‘Oink’ fame and live music from the band ‘The Last Resort’. Tickets (£5) can be purchased from either the chairman David Morrison 01361 840257 or Laura Stanhope 01361 884750 or on the day! Look for the stand with the ‘guess the weight of the fat lambs’.
