Cleobury Community Day


Thank you to everyone who joined us today, it was hot but all the dogs were well taken care of, buckets of water for soaking towels in to cool the dogs down if needed, quickest dog show ever and Have a go at Agility reduced the runs and fun to a minimum because of the heat but all had such a great time nevertheless . 

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers on the registering table and thanks to Debbie (cake lady) for taking the hugely difficult job of Judge for today. Brilliant job all round and also thank you to Ellis (otherwise-known as Frederick) for walking round in his dog suit for as long as the heat would allow, well done young man. 

Thank you to Phill for his toe tapping music, always well loved. 

Huge thank you to all for supporting Cleobury today, on the field and round n about the town, so much going on for everyone, well done to the organisers who work so hard getting these special days together.
Well done Cleobury!!! 

We have posted photos but should anyone request any to be removed (those with children mainly who have been caught in the photo) please let us know by putting your request in the comments below the photo.

Thanks again everyone, we’ll see you again next year!
