There will be plenty on offer at Ditton Priors Country Show and Fayre on Saturday 2 July 2011, including children’s entertainment and a dog show.

There will be a host of activities and events from noon to 5pm at Shropshire Council’s Oak Farm in Station Road, Ditton Priors, with charity and trade stalls as well as a display of vintage and military vehicles.

The dog show will start at 2.30pm, with classes for all shapes and sizes of dogs, including waggiest tail, most handsome dog, best veteran and the finale, champion of champions. There will be prizes for all class winners.

Registrations for all classes are to be made on the day, from noon to 2.15pm, and visitors are welcome to enter as many classes as they wish.  Entry to each class is £1.50.

Stuart Toulson, Shropshire Council’s Locality Manager for Oak Farm, said:

“Without wanting to tempt fate, it looks like the weather’s going to be good on Saturday so it should be a great day.  There will be plenty to do for the whole family, including the dog, so please come along and enjoy the entertainment and activities.  Oak Farm is a great venue for an event like this.”

Admission price on the day is £2 for adults and children under 16 go free.

Oak Farm provides training in agriculture and horticulture for adults with learning disabilities.  The farm shop is open from 10am to 5pm and stocks locally-grown produce along with preserves and other goods from Shropshire.
