Corby Glen Sheep Fair still a big draw despite terrible forecast
Organisers of this year's 782nd Corby Glen Sheep Fair say the event went extremely well despite visitor numbers being down on previous years.
Kaith Raby, chairman of the fair, estimated crowds at Sunday's event were down 40 per cent on previous years. Last year's event attracted about 3,000 visitors.
Mr Raby said: "Under the circumstances I think we did extremely well and I know the store holders did reasonable business. We have had some very good feedback from everybody. The forecast for the day was disastrous but we were extremely lucky with the weather on the day. I am extremely pleased. I don't think it could have gone any better."
