Paws will be a-plenty this July when Ham Hill Country Park hosts a Fun Dog Show on Sunday July 12.
As July draws ever closer, organisation of this event is now in full swing and it promises to be a really fun day out for all the family. The event is being organised by Friends of Ham Hill Country Park Donna McNeill and Sarah Cutler. Funds are being raised for the Friends of Ham Hill and also Ferne Animal Sanctuary.
Speaking about the organisation of the event, Donna and Sarah said, “This is the first event of this size that we have organised and so far it’s been tremendous fun. We have been received an unprecedented amount of support from local businesses keen to be involved, so a heartfelt thank you to all who have helped us so far. It has led us to meet some wonderful people who will be working with us to make this a fun day out for all the family (and the dogs!), and ultimately to bring the community together to raise funds for two really deserving local charities”.
“It’s great to enjoy a day out where your dog can be the centre of attention and we look forward to meeting all the entrants. We can’t wait to see all your creative ideas for the fancy dress class. Whether your dog is young or old, large or small, pure bred or Heinz 57 with a great character there will be a class for them to enjoy”.
Councillor Sylvia Seal, Portfolio Holder for Health and Wellbeing added, “We are delighted that Donna and Sarah have organised such a fabulous event for Ham Hill. The Country Park is obviously tremendously important to dog owners locally, and we are really pleased that this event will give them the opportunity to come together and celebrate their pets. We must also thank the event sponsors James Wellbeloved and His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales”.
More details of events that will be at the Fun Dog Show will be released closer to the time. Details of activities for children will also be released.
Come visit Ham Hill Country Park on Sunday 12 July at the Stone Circle for a fantastic family day out with your dog. Gates will open from 10am and classes will start from 11am.
