A walk that brings over 8,000 dogs ‘together’ across the globe, is back in Cambridgeshire this month (September). 

The Great Global Greyhound Walk (GGGW) was cancelled last year due to Covid-19 but is now back with an aim of 10,000 hounds. 

The walk, which is part of a worldwide event, will take place in Chatteris on Sunday September 19. 

It starts from the green of Westbourne Road, PE16 6HG at 10am. 

Owners and their hounds are encouraged to dress up whilst participating in the walk.
