Ystradgynlais Volunteer Centre attended the 2012 Sennybridge Agricultural Show, with our wood and tools items sold under the aegis of Ystrad Recycling. We also sold a variety of plants, jewellery and craft items, such as embroidery silks and pieces of material.
As always, all monies raised go towards keeping the projects running.
This year there were more sheep than ever before entered into the judging competition. Here are some of their owners, with their animals being judged.
Various staff and volunteers came to help out manning the stall during the day. Here is Recycling Manager, Gareth Evans, who covered the stall in the middle of the day.
Being right by the main exhibition ring, we had a good view of all the horse and pony events throughout the day. There were many classes, both ridden and unridden, and a novelty fancy dress competition, before the show ended with the race between five local hunts over obstacles.
A view across the main ring towards our stall. To the left was the stall for Lluest Horse & Pony Trust, and to the right, the RSPB stand.
The parade of the vintage tractors allowed many of these old workhorses to be displayed in their resplendant restored condition. The announcer gave details of the owners, the tractors' age, and how they had come to be involved in the vintage scene.
In the domestic tent, were competitions for drawing, handwriting, many types of craft and this lego competition. The model on the left is a barracks complete with watchtowers, whilst the winning model on the right portrays a rugby match, with pitch, posts, players and spectators in the stand.
A view down the walkway alongside the exhibition ring, from the YVC stand. We were next but one to the doughnut stand, which as well as tasty doughnuts, also sold good value teas and coffees. The hay bales proved a very popular seating position to watch the many hours of horse shows from.
