Farmers’ delight

The Arran Farmers’ Society show is an institution of which the island can be proud.

Starting way back in 1836 is has always been a celebration of farming and rural life. But in much more recent time it has also become a real family day out for all the island families, and visitors love it too.

And it was a real shame this year that there were no horses, but given the circumstances, it seemed common sense prevailed.

The big acts the show brings, such as The Clan stunt cycle team, do not come cheap, but they help attract the crowds and are an added attraction.

The society office bearers and directors have to be commended for putting on such a great show year after year with limited finances, grateful for the support of the sponsors, those who donate to the raffle, stallholders, and those who pay to be at the show.
