Farmer celebrates milestone birthday by leading cattle show parade

The head of a farming family recently marked his upcoming 100th birthday by leading a parade of cattle at this year’s Stokesley Show. He was met with much applause and celebration at the venue in Thirsk.

At the event, which is in its 141st year, Walter Bainbridge was welcomed very warmly as John Seymour, the commentator, informed the crowds that his birthday was approaching. Seymour also described him as “the doyen of a very large farming family in Seamer” and said the honour of leading the parade was the perfect way to mark the occasion.
