It was another ‘marvellous’ Friskney Show 10 years ago this week.

Organisers estimated more than 1,000 revellers descended on the village to enjoy the festivities.

“It was absolutely marvellous – a brilliant day,” said one of the organisers, Trish Hunter. “All the car parks were full, so we had to ask a farmer to use his field. There must have been in excess of 1,000 people.”

But not everything went to plan.

She added: “Unfortunately, no one wanted to take part in the F Factor talent show – there wasn’t anyone willing to stand up and make a fool of themselves!”
