The official Gillingham & Shaftesbury Show magazine, brought to you by the BV.
G&S Show organiser James Cox takes on the Random 19 questions, revealing a love of dunking Rich Tea biscuits, listening to country music … and the Joules website.
Giles Simpson is our Dorset island castaway. Farmer, agronomist, chairman of the Gillingham & Shaftesbury Show, and a big fan of Magnums; Giles shares the soundtrack of his life.
What the judges are judging – ever wondered what makes a prize-winning egg? Or a champion rabbit? So did we, so we asked the judges.
Matt Craddock, local sheep farmer and chairman of the G&S Show’s sheep section, discusses the sheep of things to come as the brand new Wool Village spins into action for 2022
plus: an insiders look at showing cattle, driving a steam engine and organising the equestrian events at the show. All along with a handy show timetable, the map, and a peek into the diary of a local farmer.
The BV magazine is the free ‘glossy’ digital magazine that’s a genuine slice of Dorset life – entirely online (we’re never printed) and interactive.
