With a new layout to the Dohne Marquee, traffic flowed well around the sheep and fleeces on display.
The Dohne show bags were a huge hit with approximately 400 being handed out, these show bags contained the 2019 Dohne Journal and the Dohne marquee show booklet.
Again this year record numbers of people visited the Dohne display over all three days.
Congratulations to the show committee for running such a successful event.
