The profile of the Dales branch of a charity has been driven up thanks to a transport show.

Matlock and District Mencap Society hosted its 15th Transport and Country Show in Darley Dale.

The events was opened by the branch president, the Duke of Deveonshire, as well as Rev Monk, and the Mayor of Darley Dale, Ingrid Pasteur.

The show featured a fair, beer marquee, crafts, a gun dog display, and family dog show, as well as performances from the Mencap Thursday Club Choir, Bakewell Silver Band and Derby Midshipmen Marching Band.

David Whittle and Hall’s Sound System commentated at the event and support was provided by Matlock and Brimington Air Cadets and Wayne Lenton’s Derbyshire Event First Aid.
