Today Thursday 24th August is the second day of the North Show and the GSPCA are here with a stall and have been attending since 2012.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "As mentioned yesterday this summer is extraordinarily busy for us at the GSPCA, especially with celebrating our 150 years and our BIG BUILD Appeal."

“Even last night we didn’t stop with stray dogs, baby birds, injured hedgehogs, injured bat and so many other challenges.”

“But we aren’t just working hard at the Animal Shelter as we are also at the North Show today with the fantastic Northern Trust volunteers.”

"The North Show is always a wonderful event and at the GSPCA we are so grateful to them to be allowed to join them once again."

“We are all set up and ready to go.”

"Pop along and see our GSPCA stall at the North Show."

“Also please don’t forget the fireworks tonight at 950pm and we have popped out some advice .”

The North Show is one of the main events in Guernsey's summer calendar, and takes place in the wonderful rural setting of Saumarez Park.

The Guernsey North Show and Guernsey Battle of Flowers, is held in August each year and this year it takes place this Wednesday and Thursday.

The Guernsey North Show and Battle of Flowers is run by the Northern Agricultural and Horticultural Society and the GSPCA are very grateful to them for allowing us to come along.

Each year the Show attracts thousands of visitors to: The displays of exhibitors' entries, ranging from Guernsey livestock through fur and feather, fruit, vegetables, flowers, flower arrangements, cookery, photography, art and craft.

The GSPCA have taken a stall along and we will have lots on sale and games to play.

The programme of arena events, showcasing local and off-island talent, and including in the afternoon of day two, the Guernsey Battle of Flowers, which culminates in the evening illuminated cavalcade, the whole rounded off with a firework display.

The Show is also supported throughout the two days by lots of entertainment, refreshment and other stalls and displays.
