THIS year's Suffolk Smallholders Show has been hailed a success.
The event, which moved from its usual site at Framlingham Castle to Baylham Rare Breeds Farm in Needham Market attracted just under 2,500 visitors.
Show co-ordinator Lesley Calame was delighted with the day.
She said: "It all went extremely well. The weather was good apart from some rain near the end, we had a good attendance and the feedback from both the public and the stallholders was really pleasing."
Throughout the day, families were invited to join the Suffolk Smallholders Association and many took the opportunity.
There were 58 stalls selling everything from wheel barrows to jewellery, a display of vintage tractors, digger demonstrations and even some local artists who were able to capture some of the many animals on canvas.

She also singled out praise for the 80 sea cadets from Wattisham for not only looking after the carpark but also for managing to raise over a hundreds pounds for breast cancer treatment at Ipswich Hospital.
