After one of the longest, coldest springs, we finally enjoyed the return of a decent summer in early June, which continued for the next three or four months. This enabled farm work to be well in advance by the time of Dumfries Show in early August, and resulted in an excellent turnout in both exhibitors and spectators, who enjoyed fine weather throughout the Friday and Saturday of the show resulting in a “feel-good” atmosphere. 1Attendance was well up on the previous year.
The Directors would like to express their thanks to the many stewards and attending members without whom the smooth running of the show would not be possible. The Directors also appreciate the support given by stock, trade exhibitors and sponsors as well as townspeople and the farming community
