Shear delights at Kaikohe Show

Close to 1000 people turned out for the 90th Kaikohe Agricultual, Pastoral and Horticultural Show at the showgrounds on Ngawha Springs Rd on Saturday. As well as the usual attractions - including indoor competitions, trade stalls, horse jumping, shearing, livestock and small animal displays - this year's show saw a return of sheepdog trials and wood chopping while Top Energy put on free tours of the nearby geothermal power plant.
