Oars and Paws Fun Dog Show 2021


Best in Show 2021 Truffle

Best in Show 2021 Truffle

Our fun dog show finally happened on Saturday 18th September! We thought long and hard about whether to run the show this year due to the uncertainty of COVID restrictions. We decided to go ahead but on a much scaled down event promoting to just Heybridge Basin residents and their families.

We had a fabulous day with very warm sunshine and a manageable number of entrants and spectators and we raised a very respectable £460 for Clarks Farm Greyhound Re-homing centre, a local charity in Little Totham. We shall be visiting them next month to present them with the money and also have the chance to see some of the dogs.

We hope to run  the show next year, so hold the date for Saturday 17th September 2022!
