Teacher wins top prize at first-ever rabbit championship at Countryside Live

A primary school teacher from Manchester who has been breeding rabbits for almost 40 years beat off tough competition to win the inaugural championship title at Countryside Live.

Best Rabbit in Show: Margaret a 4.5 month old White Angora owned by Adel Wray from Wilmslow

Adel Wray, of WIlmslow, was delighted that ‘Margaret’, her four-and-a-half month old Angora rabbit took ‘Best in Show’ on the opening day of the rural extravaganza. It is the first time Countryside Live has hosted a rabbit show – and there were 669 entries across more than 100 different classes.

Mrs Wray, who keeps 14 rabbits at home, is on a winning streak with her rabbits – ‘Margaret’ won another ‘Best in Show’ title recently and the rabbit’s sister ‘Theresa’ took a prize at the UK’s largest rabbit show in London earlier in the month.

“I’m delighted to have won here at Countryside Live – I can’t come to the Great Yorkshire Show as I’m a primary school teacher and I’m working when that show is on. So I’m really pleased to have won here,” said Mrs Wray, who spent two hours preparing ‘Margaret’ for her show appearance.
