There was plenty of fun in the sun in Corsley on Monday, when the crowds came out for the village’s annual summer show.
The Corsley Show Ground was home to a host of displays and exhibitions, with prizes handed out for the best fruit and vegetables, while vintage motorcars and military equipment provided further attractions.
The show ground’s main arena saw children competing in a variety of sporting races, and the county’s pooches were put through their paces at the traditional dog show.
Warminster mum Dawn Jones was at the show with her sons Matthew and Robert.
She said: “It’s been really good fun, we’ve been coming for many years and it just feels a bit more family-friendly this year, which is good to see.”
The vintage car exhibition saw vehicles from different eras from all over the world line up in the sunshine. Dave Barry, from Corsham, was among them with his restored Wolseley 1100.
He said: “This is my first time down here and it’s going really well, quite a few people have been interested in the car.”
Lance Corporal Taylor of the Warminster-based One Yorks Regiment was on hand with the unit’s Warrior tank and a selection of heavy weaponry.
He said: “Everyone’s coming over and asking questions, which is good as they can have a look at the gear and see what we do out in Afghanistan.
“The big guns are attracting the most attention, and the kids love sitting in the Warrior tank.”
Show chairman Hedley Hares said: “We wish to thank everyone who came along on what turned out to be an excellent day out in the sunshine, and we hope that people had a good time.
“The Army’s stand was a really big attraction and the dog show was more popular than ever this year.”
