Diggers Rest’s Joan Ford and her graceful Clydesdales will feature at Saturday’s Sunbury Agricultural Show.

As well as equestrian, sheep, goat and poultry competitions, this year’s event at Sunbury Recreation Reserve will mark the Anzac centenary with a visit from the Creswick Light Horse Troop.

Agricultural society president Tony McMahon says the show provides an important link to Sunbury’s agricultural roots.
