A spokesman for the organising committee said: “We were very happy with how the day went - we couldn’t have had better weather and the whole show had a really good vibe.

“All the tradestands had a great day as did the public who attended.

“Special thanks must go firstly to the Pullin family who provided the site for Buckingham YFC to hold the event, and then to all YFC members who took part as the day was for them.

“We would also like to thank the show committee, past members and friends, judges and stewards who organised and helped on the day, all stall holders, BRUFC, the band Four2One, display teams and the public who supported the show.”
