Visitors enjoying the Saddleworth Show last year

The Show, organised by the Rotary Clubs of Oldham Metro and Saddleworth, is back on Sunday, July 1 at the popular venue of Well-i-hole Farm, Greenfield.

This is one of the largest community events in the district and has something for all the family to enjoy on the day, with all the profits going to local and rotary good causes.

The fun and games at this year’s show will see the return of Circus Sensible’s Big Top and workshops.

There will also be all the traditional attractions including bouncy castles, fairground rides, pony rides, craft and charity stalls.

Entertainment will be provided by Brazilian drummers and Rock choirs to youth showcases.

And there will be an eye-catching array of new and vintage cars on display, as well as a great variety of food and drink outlets on sale.

Last year saw the introduction of the Fun Dog Show and this will be repeated this year.

Whether your dog is a scruffy crossbreed or a top pedigree, all dogs are welcome to enter the categories and have an equal chance of winning.

Entry is free and the categories include: waggiest tail, most appealing eyes, most handsome chap, prettiest girl, most obedient, judge’s choice, and best in show.

Judging will be done by Ian McConnell from McConnell Vets, which has bases in Uppermill and Mossley, and there will also be a pet-themed raffle.
