Horbury Show was once again a great success this year with all available club members contributing to the organisation, management, and control of the park on the day. We had more volunteers than ever helping with set up, car parking, bric a brac and soft drinks stalls, litter picking, and general clear up of the site.
Our sponsors enabled us to put on new attractions like the Animal Farm which proved to be a great success with our younger visitors and their parents - it was free entry after all. Spice, The Horbury Pink Ladies and Westgate Cheerleaders put on great performances in the searing heat with quite a few of them looking totally exhausted after their performances. Once again the Falconry display was well received, it gets better year on year, and the ferret racing was very popular with the crowd. The number and quality of the Veteran or is it vintage or classic cars was at an all time high both in quality and quantity and the dog show attracted a good number of entries.
It was also a special day for one of our regulars, Tom Greatorex the conductor of Horbury Band, who led them with his usual great aplomb to two performances on his 70th birthday - there were many people walking up to him with congratulations for both his birthday and the bands fine performance. 
Of course one of the other highlight of the show was the flypast by a Spitfire from the BBMF which arrived bang on time in a clear blue sky and did three passes at what seemed like tree top height.
Did the World cup effect us - not a great deal - it was a win for England and a win for Horbury Show.
Did the weather effect us - yes it did but with plenty of fluids and perseverance we had a great day putting on a show that Horbury and Phoenix can be proud of. 
Oh by the way we know the Show is a team effort but, we were once again led by a great team leader and Chief Horbury Show organiser/FC1 John Faulkner without whom we would never have taken it on and who once again led from the front - well done John.
