The best Egham Show ever was the verdict after this year's two day weekend event.

There was livestock, an amazing falconry display featuring a kookaburra bird from Australia that has the most amazing laugh, a dog show and a horticultural show - even scurry racing featuring ponies and carts racing.

There was floral art and flower arranging and a vintage car display won by a gleaming white Bentley convertible.

The deputy mayor of Runnymede Cllr Dolsie Clarke and her partner Doctor Brian Perry opened the proceedings on Saturday at Caddey's Field on Whitehall Lane.

It was hard to believe that the future of the show seemed threatened a few years ago after losing the site it had been run on for years at Runnymede. Now it has gone from strength to strength.

Show president Nick Wood-Dow said: "It was the best show ever. We had record crowds.

"The show is run entirely by volunteers and we will be meeting again in September to plan the 160th show."
