Judges looked for the waggiest tail, the prettiest bitch, the most handsome dog and the best fancy dress, as canines of all shapes and sizes strutted their stuff at the playing field, and there were rosettes, prizes and trophies on offer to the winners.

Margaret Buck, secretary of the Friends said: “We had a really great day with both the fun dog show and the more serious lurcher and terrier show.

“We raised a record amount in excess of £650, and we want to thank everyone who supported the event, the sponsors and the pet owners.”

In the fun dog show, the best in show prize went to a 10-year-old greyhound from Hampshire called Bobbie, and the reserve best in show was awarded to a cocker spaniel from Marham called Johnnie.

Margaret added: “We held a fund raising tombola and doggy lucky dip alongside the show. We were thrilled that so many families brought their dogs along to support the event.”
