AN OUTBREAK of seasonably warm weather tempted thousands of people out to enjoy the entertainment at this year's Countess of Warwick's Country Show.
More than 4000 people attended the annual event held in Little Easton over the bank holiday weekend, which raised money for the four medieval churches in the Five Parishes.
Opening the arena events was Canon Gillian Greenslade, rector of the Five Parishes. She said: "After all the rain we've had, it was fantastic we had the excellent weather for the two days.
"This is a proper country show celebrating agriculture and traditional crafts such as wood turning. As it is free to enter it means many families can attend and enjoy themselves without spending a fortune."
