A fitting celebration of Crowland's rich rural and town heritage took place at Snowden Field on Saturday.

The 40th Crowland Show adopted a "Bygones" theme to mark the milestone, best demonstrated by the display of vintage vehicles, classic cars and agricultural machinery.

Visitors also found an exhibition ofhistoric maps and photographs, circus workshops, dance displays and an agility contest for dogs.

Canines also had their own dog show, with no less than 25 classes for owners to enter their pets in.

The day was completed by birds of prey and wildlife stands, cake and hog roast stalls, a dressage competition, WI exhibition and saw mill demonstration.

Tom Henfrey, the show's chairman, said: "We had an excellent day, with good attendances for the horse and dog shows.

"There was also a dog agility team who seemed to be very popular, an excellent vintage and classic cars display, the wood sawing demonstration went down exceptionally well and there was good support all over the show site.

"We saw plenty of people on Saturday, all the stallholders had a good time and everything went well."

Ann Caprio, president of Crowland WI, said: "We had 177 entries across all the various classes and there was a good turnout from all the other local WI groups whose members made cakes and biscuits to sell on the cake stall.

"This raised a total of £159 and a lot of WI members turned out to help, with most of the judges being local as well."

The winner of the best in show for flowers was WI member Vanessa Boom.

Tom said: "We've had good, positive feedback about the show and there will definitely be another one next year."
