On Saturday 13th May, Machars entered several competitions at Ayr Show. For Arts and Crafts, Machars entered two junior teams, whose theme was ‘School Days’ and one senior team whose theme was ‘Abracadabra’. Machars also entered two junior stock judging teams and one senior stock judging team who came third.

A great day was enjoyed by all.
