But it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits with all of the main exhibits and events still going ahead.

Press officer for the show Fiona Drummond said: “Everything went to plan other than the weather.

“We had some phenomenal exhibits and the tractor pull was a great spectacle.

“There was some really high quality in the marquees including the cakes, cheeses, floral exhibits and photography.
