THIS year’s Darnhall Show proved to be bigger than before when crowds flocked to the annual event.

The sun shone on Sunday when the third Darnhall Show was held on Court House Farm off Swanlow Lane.

The show, which changed names from the Village Day and transformed into a bigger event in 2015, included a fun fair, a dog show, a vintage tractor road run, steam engine, vintage cars and wagons, farmer’s market, shopping tent, various stalls, raffle and tombola, dancers, a choir and a horse fancy dress show.

A small craft and produce competition was also run and the organisers say it is hoped it will be expanded on next year.

This year’s Darnhall Rose Queen was Alyssa Bownes, who attends Worleston School, and she later sang in the school choir.

Winsford Town Mayor Cllr Mike Kennedy went along in the afternoon and judged the best tractor and best scarecrow.

Sue Langley, Darnhall Show organiser, said: “Many thanks to all those who helped not only on the day but the weeks and months beforehand and thanks to everyone who advertised in our show programme.

“Special thanks also has to go the members of the Cheshire West and Chester Council who kindly sponsored this year’s event which enables us to have a bigger marquee this year.

“We start again now to prepare for next year’s show so if anyone has any ideas or would like to get involved in some way please contact me.

“We hope you enjoyed your day and look forward to seeing you all again next year.”
