CHRISTMAS PARTY 12th December 2022 & DOG OF THE YEAR 2022 AWARDS

We held our Christmas Party & Dog of the Year Awards for 2022 on Monday 12th December.

Considering the weather in some parts of the county, we were lucky to be able to go ahead and we had a good turn out, although not as many as expected, some due to the weather, others due to illness.  However, we had a lovely evening, with a Fancy Dress Competition, A huge Raffle, lots of great games and a Buffet.

Heres a selection of photos taken by Gayle Cavie during the evening.  Thank you Gayle
