ABINGTON Show went with a swing this year with weather much better than the forecast and a good turn out in all sections.
A large number of Blackies kept the sheep judges busy and the show champion was a blackface ewe from J Wight and Sons, Midlock, with a suckler cow and calf from Hartside Farms the reserve. Top dog was R. Reid’s Jura.
Winner of the 7km road race was George Orr, with Wendy Johnstone first woman and John Wight the junior winner.
Freelance photographer Alan Watson was on hand to capture the action for the Gazette and his pictures, featured in our slideshow created by editor Julie Currie, are available to purchase on this website.
