ONCE again hundreds of people flocked to a Hampshire park to celebrate the rural way of life.

The annual Alresford Show returned on Saturday with hundreds attending the event at Tichborne Park.

The foundation of the show was the livestock with cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry and heavy horses.

This year participants also attempted to break a world record and make a four metre tall papier-mache elephant.

The event, which was first run in 1908, is organised by the Alresford and District Agricultural Society.
