Wilton’s war call

PREPARATIONS are underway for the annual Bishop Wilton Show- and strong-armed volunteers are being asked to come forward.

The long-standing rural extravaganza is now in its 114th year and, as the countdown continues, organisers are keen for people to step forward to take part in the tug o’ war competition planned for the day.

They are also hoping to borrow a proper tug o’war rope for the day. Anyone who can lend a rope, help out or wants to join in with the muscle-bound competition, should contact Robert Willoughby on (01759) 306490.

This year’s show will be on Saturday, 16 July. Log onto www.bishopwiltonshow.co.uk for more details.
