HUNDREDS of people turned out to enjoy fairground rides, lawnmower racing and a variety of country pursuits this weekend.

The Middlesex Show brought people from across the county to Park Road, Uxbridge, where a dog show, a strong man competition and archery were among a number of events held to entertain the crowds.

David Guerin, 49, of Waterloo Road, Uxbridge, said: "I used to come to the show every year until it moved away.

"I think it's a much better atmosphere here and I hope to see it grow more and more.

"It's unbelievable it's back in Uxbridge again. I think this is the greatest event the town has annually."

Lawnmowers sent dust flying into the air as they powered round a dirt track race course at break neck speeds.

Barrie Thomas, winner of the group four lawn tractor race, said: "It felt saw. I'm still hurting now. It was very exciting.

"It's always very exciting with the group fours. The whole sport is exciting."

Residents were treated to a parade of classic cars, a marching band and a sheep dog display.

There were also activities for children, including a bouncey castle, a ferris wheel and a range of fairground style games with prizes.

Sue WIlliams, of the Mounted Games Association of Great Britain, said: "We've had a fantastic weekend. Yesterday was cloudy but we battled on and today the weather was sunny.

"It's wonderful. The crowds were out, people were having a good time and enjoying themselves. I think it was a really good day."
