WITH no Romsey Show this year, the Daily Echo takes a look back at at the event twenty years ago.

Thousands of people flocked to the annual show over the weekend for a taste of country life.

These pictures were snapped by a photographer when he visited the show ground on September 9, 2000.

Among the images are the Light Division Band, children with animals and judges with livestock.

As well as animal related events including showjumping, crowds were entertained with facepainting and food.
