A dog show, tug of war contest, music and stalls helped Horringer’s 130th annual flower show and fete bring in more than £6,000 for local organisations.

The event pulled in about 500 people on Saturday and was awash with family fun and attractions including 50 stalls and music from Pete Buchanan, The Throwbacks and Big Girls Blooze.

The Forelock and Load sponsored dog show was a highlight and the ‘judges champion’ became the poster dog of Forelock and Load, which is a gun room and saddlery in Barrow.

In the tug of war, winning team T.O.W.I.E (Tug Of War Is Easy) took home the prestigious shield while teams from Ickworth Park Primary and Horringer Preschool were awarded a hamper of outdoor prizes.

Local organisations made more than £6,000 profit from the event. Organiser Kim Turner said: “I was totally overwhelmed by every element of the fete, from the amount of people that turned out first thing in the morning to help set and the massive crowds who came and enjoyed the day, to the figures raised by various organisations and the wonderful feedback we have received. I can’t thank my friends and family enough for all their help.”

She thanked Jill and Trevor Wells for loaning equipment.
