OVER 1500 people enjoyed a great day at the traditional Draycott in the Clay village show.

Glorious weather greeted attendees to the event at Grange Farm on Sunday.

Animals played a big part on the day, with shire horses and dogs both involved in entertainment. This included a fastest sausage eating competition amongst the dogs!

For transport enthusiasts, steam engine threshing and baling reminded guests of times gone by, and a display of Austin 7 motorcars, vintage motorcycles and tractors completed the rural picture.

Death defying stunts were performed by a mountain bike stunt crew, drawing large crowds.

Music was provided by the Ashbourne Town brass band.

Children were able to take rides on the funfair, enjoy magic shows, have a go at the coconut shy, and enter into the picture hunt run by St Augustine's School.

Visitors were fuelled by an on-site hog-roast, tea tent and bar.

The day was rounded off in true village show style, with a keenly contested annual 'tossing the sheaf' competition.
