This year Powburn show will take place on Saturday the 3rd August 2019 from 9 a.m. and the sheep dog trials will be held on Saturday the 20th July 2019, again this will take place at Brandon Whitehouse and hosted again by Roy Dods after a very successful 2018 event.
The very popular Hill race will start this year at 11 a.m. from the rear of the marquee, again, the access road will be closed for 15 minutes for the safety of the runners. This attracted many runners from in and out of the area, 2018 was particularly hot, well done to all those who competed.
New for 2019 is clay pigeon shooting, this will take place on Sunday the 4th of August to avoid any distress to the pony and dog sports. However, the clay pigeon event holders will be available on the Saturday for advice and booking details.
Attractions for 2019 are the traditional game of Quoits – prize for the winner, return of the vintage cars, music by local band ‘Heads on the Block’, terriers and dog show and lots more to keep your entertained.
For the younger members of the family there will be go-carting. Also face painting, this is free for them to enjoy, along with the usual pony sports, children’s sports and activities.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the advertisers and sponsors, notably NE concrete and Penny Petroleum for their continued support and Nigel Dods for the use of his field.
We will look forward to welcoming you on the day and let’s hope the weather is as beautiful as last year, to kick off the show season.

Plea from Bibby Curtis (07809 701261)
On 15th September, 2018, my darling Amo was stolen from the Midland Game Fair, Telford. She is my first pup that I bred myself and I am beyond heartbroken that she has been taken by somebody.
Amo is now 18 months old, she was born unable to breathe on her own. Amo was the last pup of five, and her mother was very tired after 12 hours of labour. Before she was born, we unfortunately had a still-born, so when Amo was struggling to breathe, I was determined that I was going to pull this tiny puppy through. It took 45 minutes of me rubbing Amo up and down with a towel to get the blood to flow through her body to enable her to breathe on her own. After those long 45 minutes, Amo was able to breathe independently and joined the other three puppies who were successful in their delivery. From the moment she was born, I had a connection with my little girl, I knew that she was mine, and I loved her from that moment onwards.
There is a MASSIVE REWARD for the safe return of my Amo. No information is insignificant, please come forward in confidence.
