Oars & Paws Dog Show

Pictures are now in our Gallery!!

Thank you to everyone who supported our annual Fun Dog Show on 10th June. The weather was perfect. Hopefully, everyone who came along had great day. We have raised just over £950 with proceeds going to our chosen local charities:

Sea Change Sailing Trust and AA Dog Rescue.


We have decided to hold next year’s show in September 2018 and the date will be published on our website and Facebook once confirmed, so keep looking!


Held each year in Daisy Meadow, Heybridge Basin, this charity event is fast becoming a village favourite.

The Agility Stakes is another timed event which runs throughout the event where dogs and handlers are timed over the course and the fastest six race again in the final. The winner earns a place in the Best in Show category.

All proceeds go to Row 4a Reason. The show has been held every June since 2003 and to date we have raised over £8500.
