Full Steam Ahead For Gillingham And Shaftesbury Show’s New Attraction

The Gillingham and Shaftesbury Show takes place on the 18th and 19th of August. Vintage steam engines are new to the Turnpike Showground this year.

Louise Hall was keen to arrange this new attraction because steam has played a major part in the story of North Dorset agriculture. Louise tells Alfred what we can expect at the event.

Richard Pocock from Berwick will be attending. He says steam is ‘in his blood’. In our report, he explains what it means to exhibit his vintage steam vehicle.
