Organisers said they were delighted with the turnout for the 200th Garstang Show on Saturday.

Judges praised the quality of livestock and horticulture on display, while visitors were also treated to death-defying displays from champion freestyle motorcross rider Jamie Squibb.

And there was plenty of entertainment for the younger generation as Cbeebies star Katy Ashworth proved a hit at the show.

Secretary Melissa Wood said: “It’s a traditional agricultural show but it’s nice to have something extra for the families as well, with it being the 200th show.

It’s all done on a voluntary basis and everyone puts such effort in
