As the sunshine returned, the crowds poured into Haverfordwest Showground for the third and final day of the 2017 Pembrokeshire County Show. Getting around was no problem in stout shoes or wellies and the main paths were clear, but the arenas had become waterlogged overnight and this, unfortunately, meant that the Grand Parades of livestock could not go ahead and the motorbike display team’s show was cancelled, too.
