AS well as showcasing Ryedale’s agriculture Malton Show also provides a day of entertainment for all the family.

Children were well catered for with fairground rides, facepainting and a mini-railway.

There was also the opportunity to sit on a vintage tractor and have a look inside a fire engine courtesy of North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue.

North Yorkshire Police’s rural taskforce were also in attendance offering crime prevention advice as well as giving children the opportunity to try out a finger print.

Keeping the crowds fed and watered were the team from Fairweather Catering.

Based in Butterwick, the company has run the show’s catering tent since 2015.

Refreshments were served throughout the day to show members and non-members, and a lunch served to the show’s president and his guests.

Owner Janet Fairweather said: “I love doing Malton Show.

“It is always hard work beforehand doing the preparation but once all that is done it flows like clockwork.

“I also have a really good team here who also enjoy being at the show.”

Also in a new location on the showground was Ryedale Dog Rescue’s fun dog show.

Rosie Stephenson, from the charity, said they were delighted when organisers suggested moving the event closer to the main ring.

“It has gone very well and we have had some great entries.”
