The Fun Dog Show will be held on the Church Terrace – entries are on the day from 12 noon, at £1 per entry, and judging – by local celebrity vet Steve Leonard – will start at 12.45 pm. There will be 7 open classes with something for everyone – from Cutest Puppy and Best Rescue through to Loveliest Eyes!  The Best in Show will be judged later in the afternoon in the Main Ring.

The Gundog Scurry, under the control of Julie & Harry Shaw, will take place on the Main Field from 12.30 pm.  Entry is £2 per run (3 runs for £5!).  It’s all for fun, and a chance for owners to put their dogs’ skills to the test on a timed scurry.

Admission to Merry Days is £5 for adults, £1 for children under 16 (free if with an adult).  Dogs are welcome.  Car parking (at own risk) is free.
