OVER 4,000 people attended the Bedfordshire Country Show at Old Warden Park at the weekend.
The event was blessed with good weather and show chairman Phil Gooden, who runs the owl and birds of prey centre at the park, promised next year would be bigger and better.
"Numbers were down on last year as people were still interested in watching the World Cup games," said Mr Gooden.
"But despite the football the show was well attended and Saturday was a fantastic day and visitors said they had a great time."
