Friskney Show ‘biggest ever’

The organisers behind this year’s Friskney Show have spoken of their delight after they had one of the largest public turnout in the event’s 10-year history.

The weather stayed dry for Sunday’s 10th anniversary, and the public made the most of the fair, if cool, conditions.

Trish Hunter, one of the organisers, said she was absolutely thrilled with the success of this year’s event, and the many memorable moments that were witnessed - including majestic flypasts by a Dakota in Battle of Britain livery.

Other attractions included performances from line dancer, belly dancers, cheerleaders and the show’s tenth anniversary party entertainment.

“It was a bit chilly and breezy but not enough to blow about the marquees, and I’m pleased it didn’t rain,” said Trish. “We had one of the best turnouts yet.”

She added that the flypasts were among the highlights. “The flypast was in Battle of Britain colours and one of the chaps was hanging out of the window waving. They flew over three times.

“The Lisa Jay Stage Institute were also very impressive with their show. They used some of the material from their Skool Daze show at the Embassy Theatre earlier in the year and that was really good,” she added.

She would like to thank the public, and the many helpers and relatives who travelled to help out, some of whom came from as far afield at Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire.
