More than 2,000 people turned-out for the annual Turnditch & Windley Show at the weekend, which this year was held on a new site.

Villagers and families came along in their droves with numbers being increased by a large contingent of contestants entering qualifiers for the national Horse of the Year Show.

A falconry display, horse and carriage driving, shire horse parade, dog and duck display, Ashbourne Town Band, DNS beagles, a vintage tractor competition and display, pet show, WI crafts, hog roast barbecue, Shottle Brewery bar, trade stands, sideshows and tombola and activities for children were among the attractions.

This year the event moved half a mile down the road to Windley Meadows Farm after its previous home was ploughed-up by the landowner.

Chairman of the show, Les Blanchon, said: “I was delighted with the new site - everything went better than ever. Everything was very convenient and lots of people came out to support us.

“We had a fantastic turnout of horses because of the event being a qualifier this year.

“The weather was dull but it didn’t seem to affect people coming along.

“The standard of homecrafts entry was also very high - but then it always is in Turnditch.”

The Horse of the Year Show is being held in Birmingham next month and attracts hundreds of entries from across the UK.

Around 60 shows have been held in and around Windley over the years, with the event starting post-war.

It started as a garden party organised by the women’s institute at Lady Inglefield’s house.
