Rural life celebrated at Boon Hill Show
BOON Hill’s annual show proved a big success on Saturday thanks to record crowds and good weather.
Chairman Bob Gibson said exhibitors had travelled from a wide area to take part in the show, held at Newton-upon-Rawcliffe.
The show specialises in horse riding and showjumping, terrier classes, vintage tractors, as well as cookery, horticultural crafts and ferrets.
Mr Gibson said it had been an excellent day.
He said: “I would like to thank the Woodmansey family for all their support and everyone else for their kind help and support in the running of the show.
“The show went really well with lots of people attending. The showjumping carried on well into the evening. The weather was good which brought the crowds and everyone enjoyed themselves.”
Mr Gibson said the show had held a minute’s silence at 2pm for Jack Hollows, a lifelong supporter of all the local shows with his sheepdogs and ferrets and also for Linda Hobbs who loved to come to Boon Hill show.
Money raised from the event will go to the Yorkshire air ambulance, Scarborough District Hospital’s special care baby unit and other local charities.
