Bushy Park Show 2016

About 2000 people attended today's 142nd Bushy Park Show, where local police
constable Paul Britten was named the potato-peeling champion of the Derwent
Valley after winning his heat and the grand final in the show society's inaugural
potato peel-off. He was awarded two ribbons, a certificate and a bag of
freshly-dug potatoes for his efforts
Organisers said about 500 more people had attended this year's show than last
year's total of just over 1500. Warm and sunny conditions helped to draw a crowd.

The Sands Family Circus made a popular return to the show, entertaining the
audience with their acrobatic act.
