The Wanstead Village Dog Show was once again a great success, enjoyed by human and canines alike.

No ruff weather spoiled the fun – the event was blessed with glorious sunshine – and there was plenty to enjoy, with a BBQ (thanks to The Ginger Pig), bar, cakes and bouncy castle. The Pimms was clearly a huge hit, as this thirsty reporter can attest, having been denied one due to it having sold out!

The main attraction was, however, the dogs themselves. Contestants ranged from Great Danes Barnaby and Brooke (Barnaby went on to win Best Dog), to the smaller but perfectly formed Tallulah.

Our thanks go as always to our event sponsors Petty Son & Prestwich, and also to Goddard Vets for providing trophy, rosettes and judges. Most particular thanks however to Phil Ryan and his team of volunteers, without whom the event could not run.
