A country fair to support the Suffolk Young Farmers organisation saw about 1,000 people turn out to watch everything from a dog show to tugs of war.

The annual event, which last year raised about £5,000 for the young farmers, was held at Easton Farm Park at Easton, Woodbridge, on Sunday.

The day included a horse show, dog show, tugs of war and vintage tractors.

Tory Lugsden, county organiser for Suffolk Young Farmers, said there were full entries in all classes for the horse show, and the highest ever entries in the dog show. She added the young farmers were really pleased to have won the tug of war against Army Squadron 677.

“It’s been a lovely vibe,” she said. “A lovely show of what young farmers can do because they are all volunteers.”

She said the event, now in its sixth year, was “growing and growing”: “It’s our main fundraiser for the year because we are a charity. It’s to raise money for all our running costs.”

She said Sunday’s event was also raising money for the Charlotte Cobbald memorial fund.
