ALL THINGS from Dorset were celebrated at the Evershot Country Fair.

Fine weather pulled in the crowds for the event, which featured 85 stalls including rural craft and trade stands.

Sherborne Vale Dog Agility Team also put on a display of canine skills before visitors to the fair were able to put their own pooches through their paces with varying degrees of success.

People enjoyed trailer rides through the Melbury Estate and deer park, while some simply laid out a blanket and enjoyed a picnic whilst listening to live music from Van Rouge and marvelling at the display from the Yetminster Irish Dancers.

There was also plenty of food and refreshments on offer.

Organiser Lee Wicks said: “The marquee was doing a steady trade with a lot of good from Dorset, which is nice to see. A lot of things on the day were very special to Dorset.

“It’s been lovely to have the good crowd through the gates.”
