MORE than 12,000 people turned out to the West Show this week to celebrate its centenary year.
Organisers said they were delighted with the number of people who attended to make the milestone year so successful.
The show usually sees around 10,000 islanders and visitors pass through the gates but this year 12,000 were recorded.
And the West Show committee said the number excluded those who had bought tickets prior to the event at various shops.
‘We are still to go around collecting from the various places but roughly I would say the total number would be around 12,400,’ said show president Carole Turner. ‘We are absolutely thrilled with how it has all gone.’
