What a difference a year can make. Dumfries Show 2014 was a very wet day in a relatively dry summer, whereas 2015 was a good day in a wet summer. Trade stand spaces were filled to capacity. Cattle and goat entries were on a par with the previous year and sheep entries were slightly up. Horse entries were in their usual high numbers which attracted a lot of spectators on both the Friday and Saturday of the Show.
The home and garden exhibits continue to expand with much enthusiasm from the entrants. There are many juvenile entries as well as adult entries which the public view with great interest on both the Friday and Saturday.
The food festival included the Farmers’ Market. It is very encouraging to see the quality of produce on display, all of which is locally produced.
The J M Rome awared was won by Graeme Fraser and one long service medal was presented.
Sincere thanks to our sponsors for their continued support of our show and to the trade stand and livestock exhibitors. Also to the directors, stewards and attending members who put in so much hard work to ensure the smooth running of the show.
