Rain failed to put off the crowds as more than 1,000 people enjoyed the festivities of Pegswood Show.

This year, the show was a combined event of the Fire Station Open Day, the Fun Dog Show, and the village show itself.

It was launched with a traditional parade through the village, led by the children of Pegswood Primary School and the Morpeth Pipe Band.

By the time they arrived at the Welfare Field there was around 100 people as residents joined the marchers as they made their way along Front Street.

At the fire station, visitors could see all the engines and vehicles out on display, and enjoyed a number of demonstrations carried out by the firefighters.

Younger visitors could also try out being a firefighter for the day.

The dog show was organised by Pegswood Community Action, and with Robson and Prescott vets judging, there were winners of all shapes and sizes.

Right across the Welfare Field the show provided lots of entertainment from Zumba to Tribal dancers, the KEVI Steel Drum Band, children’s games and the dancing display by Pegswood Primary School.

Even though the weather made it a bit of a challenge, the watching crowds enjoyed what was on offer.

The traders’ tent had stalls including Pegswood Hub, Woodhorn Miners’ Memorabilia, artists, cakes and more with the WI providing refreshments.

Pegswood Allotments had a large marquee, and put on a fantastic display of produce and poultry.

The bee-keepers had a lot of interested visitors taking time to learn about the work they do.

The competition tent was filled with a range of handiwork including knitted items, painting and, of course, cakes and preserves all laid out beautifully for the judging to take place.

The show was organised by a joint committee of the allotments, Pegswood Community Action, Pegswood Hub, the fire and rescue service, the school, Beavers, Brownies and the parish council.
