Great Northern Show organisers Heather Watson and Sharon Herne with some entries for the show on Saturday.

Entrants need to register exhibits at Rochester Community House by tomorrow but late entries will be accepted on Thursday.

President Heather Watson said the committee worked hard to get more events on Saturday and secured Bob the Beeman, who would carry out bee workshops at 11.30am and 1.30pm; Herb Neilson, who would demonstrate his blade shearing talents; and the Australian Working Dog Rescue.

The Tiny Tots competition will be judged at 2pm and people can enter their beautiful children on the day.

Publicity officer Sharon Herne said the Rochester Leos Club would run a milkshake stand where people could pedal the bike to blend their shakes.

The group will also sell fairy floss.

The fireworks will be on from 9.30pm and Mrs Watson urged Rochester residents to tether their animals.

The Rochester market will also be on Saturday morning and will have a limited supply of children’s show tickets.
