The first day of autumn blessed the Winchester show with fine, mild weather.

The Temuka and Geraldine A&P Society's 140th show at the Winchester Showgrounds attracted a large crowd that ambled under the leafy trees and explored myriad activities, from the traditional farm animals to the latest sideshows. Courier Country reporter Sally Brooker took her camera.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
