Where the Town meets the Country


Excitement is growing as the day of the Gillingham and Shaftesbury Agricultural Show is almost upon us.

This years president - our very own John Woolley - says that 2017 looks all set to be one of the best events ever, with a record number of trade exhibitors, a great range of attractions for all the family and entries for the competitive classes being received at a record rate.


With good weather forecast, apply your sunscreen and come along to the Motcombe Turnpike Showground on Wednesday 16th August between 8.30 am and 6.30 pm to join in the fun. 

As John said during his exclusive interview with Valley News " Its a day for the community to get together and have a great day out, and I don't think you can ask for more than that!"
