Llanyre Show was resurrected last week after a gap of six years.

With virtually a new committee its dedication and enthusiasm for the event helped create a very good day for those that attended. The show was opened by the president, Robin Gibson Watt who paid tribute to all the committee and volunteers who had made the event possible and to all those who had supported the afternoon in any way possible.

One feature of the entertainment was a gymnastic display by members of the Llandrindod Dragons Gymnastic Club display. There was also a dog show which was judged by Natasha Howells of Newbridge on Wye.

The children’s fancy dress competition with the theme of ‘Princesses and Pirates’ also attracted a number of entrants. The children’s pet show was judged by Liz Jones the local vet. A football competition together with a bouncy castle and a tug of war competition were also amongst the many events during the afternoon.

A number of side stalls from local organisations including the Wales Air Ambulance, the Llandrindod Lions Club, Powys Road Safety and the Fire Service as well as the Llandrindod Wells Food Bank had representatives there. In the craft tent there were competitions from floral arrangements to cookery, photography and children’s classes. Llanyre Women’s Institute was responsible for the refreshments and offered many homemade items for sale.

The scarecrow competition, which was held for Llanyre residents prior to the show, had over 20 entries and was won by Julie Farmborough from Cortay Park.

Committee chairman, County Councillor Claire Mills said afterwards that she was “absolutely over the moon” for the support that the show had received from the local community, together with the support from the surrounding area, and she hoped to build on it next year.
