Weatherman is Show’s ideal guest!

BBC weather presenter Paul Hudson turned out to be the ideal guest as the Mirfield Show on Sunday went from early showers to brighter spells later on. 

He opened the annual agricultural event with Mayor of Mirfield Coun Sean Guy and charity fundraiser Derek Highe.

Army parachute display team the Red Devils impressed another huge crowd of 10,000 with precise landings in the main ring at the Showground.

Show chairman Karen Bullivant said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to all the visitors who came along in their thousands. We had yet another very successful show.”Mirfield Show 2016 3

Karen paid tribute to her committee and said: “We are all volunteers and we spend the whole year meticulously planning the event. Their dedication, organisation and much hard work paid off.”

She also thanked the volunteers who helped on the day and added: “We do rely on them for the smooth running of the show.”

Sponsors included Skoda dealership DM Keith Ltd and Stockeld Park while Mirfield Town Council sponsored a marquee.

Local firms Charlotte’s Ice Cream Parlour, Ossett Brewery Taverns, the Dusty Miller and Westfields Nursery were among other backers.
