FROM sheepdogs to ‘cavemen’ there was plenty to entertain the crowds as the 23rd Nowton Park Country Fair beat the weather.
With a wet, windy weekend before and gales on Saturday, it did not look too good for Sunday, but the wind dropped and the sun arrived.
It brought out families to see displays by a dance team from King Edward VI school and gymnasts from Bury Spectrum. They were amazed and amused by the acrobatics of the Wacky Tumblairs and the Pre He Men and there were funfair rides for the younger visitors.
Even the dogs had their day with Bob Hogg and his sheepdog display showing how well trained dogs behaved while hundreds of family pets joined in for the annual fun dog show in aid of the RSPCA.
But animal lovers did not have to bring their own pets because there was a children’s farm area where they could make furry friends.
There were no carriage rides this year following last year’s accident in which grandmother Carole Bullett, from Bury, died.
