Still going strong even after 130 years, the Sturton & Stow Agricultural and Horticultural Association Show will be held on Saturday, October 7 at Sturton-by-Stow Primary School.

Rebecca Andrews, association secretary, said: “I am proud to have been secretary of the association for the last few years.

“The show is so much a part of the community with different generations of families taking part, but also new people coming to live in Sturton and Stow getting involved and becoming very much part of village life.

“It is an amazing achievement to have reached our 130th anniversary.

“And to mark the occasion, a book is being compiled on the history of the Sshow and it will be on sale at the show.”

“We welcome locals and also visitors from further afield.

“If you have never been, do come along and have a great day out visiting the ploughing match in the morning and coming along to the show in the afternoon.”

Admission to the show is 50p minimum donation and 30p for children.

The show is at Sturton school on School Lane, in Sturton and is open from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.
