The heat was on. Cattistock Countryside Show

Sunday August 5th turned out to be yet another scorcher with the temperature rising early in the day, but we were determined to keep our cool at our very first Cattistock Countryside Show.

Set against a backdrop of Dorset’s beautiful rolling hills, the drought unfortunately meant the ground was too hard for the show jumping and gate jumping to proceed. There was still plenty to enjoy including dog shows, flower and produce competitions and a traditional tug of war.

We had the honour of sponsoring the tug of war as well as some of the dog events.

And we came prepared…

We wanted everything to be pitch perfect.

And it turned out to be a really great day. Thank you to everyone who came along, said hello and took part in our sponsored dog shows and tug of war.

Congratulations to the winners of our John Bright vouchers. Next stop? The Gillingham & Shaftesbury Agricultural Show Wednesday August 15. See you there!
