A TRADITIONAL agricultural show is set to return to its hometown after more than two decades.

The Caerwys Agricultural Show will once again be held in Caerwys on the Flintshire-Denbighshire border after the show committee voted to relocate it to Ty Ucha Farm.

The show was established more than 100 years ago and remains the only agricultural show to take place in Flintshire, though it has changed considerably over time. It began as a local community event before the First World War and was revived in the late 1970s, staged in Caerwys, until 1995 when it moved to other parts of the county.

Since the 1970s the show has been cancelled just three times, including 2001 due to the foot-and-mouth outbreak and this year following heavy rain.

The committee has launched a fundraising appeal for the event next year. They have received support from the Denbigh & Flint Show, which will host a raffle for a hamper, donated by the Prince of Wales' Charitable Fund, on August 15.
