The sights, sounds and smells of the countryside were on full display this weekend for the traditional Deepings Show.

Hundreds of people attended the show on Saturday and Sunday to see the variety of livestock, farm machinery and other displays at the showground in Millfield Road, Market Deeping.

The show has been running since 1945, and this year included a flypast from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Dakota.

The showjumping competitions were some of the most popular arena events as families enjoyed the early summer sun.

Along with the farm attractions, there were also displays from gymnastic teams, dance troupes and martial arts demonstrations.

Last week show president Eric Freeman called on the public to support the show and he was delighted with the response.

He said: “They went down in their droves, they really did. And after being concerned about entries we were overwhelmed with them.”

Mr Freeman thanked all those who turned up over the weekend.
