Brilliant sunny weather made for an excellent Temuka & Geraldine A&P Show at Winchester recently.

A crowd of  about 6000 turned out to enjoy all the action, although show president Phillipa Sanders said takings were slightly down.

‘‘There was too much on in the area,’’ she said.

It was a busy weekend in South Canterbury, as a March Hare Rally in Temuka, the 125th celebration for the Temuka Athletic Club and other events took place. Chris Tobin caught the agricultural action.
