The first day of the Devon County Show was ‘just the perfect day’.

That was the unanimous verdict of organisers, trade stand holders, exhibitors and show-goers alike, after a day of unbroken sunshine, with just a breeze to take the edge off temperatures.

Ahead of the final day, on Saturday, May 19, show Secretary Ollie Allen said: “The weather could not have been better, and that, together with our usual magnificent exposition of farming, food and rural life in Devon made for the biggest first day crowd for several years.

“Trade stand holders of all sorts have been reporting brisk business and the ice-cream makers have had a field day.

From the point of view of the farming community, the timing of the show was just right, after the recent fine weather allowed them to catch up after that miserably cold and wet spring.”

The competition rings throughout the show ground have been in full swing with livestock, equine classes, poultry and Devon honey.
