Picture gallery: Countess of Warwick Show raises �12,000 from barbecue alone
THE Countess of Warwick Show was another huge success with thousands of people flocking to Little Easton for a fun filled day out.
With new attractions accompanying family favourites from last year there was something for everyone.
All the money has yet to be counted although the organisers have confirmed that the BBQ alone raised �12,000. All the money from the show goes towards vital renovation work to the four churches in the five parishes.
Tim Turner of the organising committee said: “We were very pleased with the attendance, despite rather changeable weather! We would like to thank everybody who joined us this year for their support.
“Last year we think there were about 12,000 people through the door and I wouldn’t be surprised if there was that many again.”
Many people were complimentary about the show, and our new features such as the Zorb Zone, the climbing wall, vintage speedway bikes, a 1912 electric car and a steam car.
Returning favourites such as the horticultural show, art exhibition and the animals also delighted families.

Taylors raised �295 for the Five Parishes over the two days.
