HATS and sun cream were the order of the day as Stroud Country Show returned in soaring temperatures this afternoon.

Families enjoyed crafts, art, horticulture, delicious food and drink and of course plenty of dogs competing for various titles including waggiest tail at Stratford Park.

This year's event marked a celebration of the show's 150th anniversary and was the first show for two years due to the pandemic.

Brick-throwing, tug of war, live bands and choirs also drew the crowds.
