Dogs Day Out 2024

It’s that time of year again, and we’d love you to join us on Sunday 30th June 2024, from 12-4pm, for our annual get-together – so that we can celebrate our fabulous four-legged friends and have some fun!

 

It’s a wonderful opportunity to raise much-needed funds for NWESSR, as our services continue to be in demand, as always.

 

Everyone is welcome, so please bring along your friends and family.  Any breed can enter our dog show.

 

As usual, the afternoon will be full of plenty of things to enjoy for both two- and four-legged visitors – with a dog show, have-a-go activities, a tombola, and a raffle.

 

The first dog show class starts at 1pm, but please arrive at least 15 minutes before to register.  £2 per entry:

 

Class 1 – Loveliest Lady

Class 2 – Fabulous Fella

Class 3 – Waggiest Tail

Class 4 – Best Veteran

Class 5 – Best 6 Legs

Class 6 – Best Paw Shaker

Class 7 – Best NWESSR Dog

Class 8 – Best Rescue

 

The ever-popular have-a-go activities, including Dog Agility, Dog Show Jumping, Fastest Recall and Gun Dog Scurry will be available to try throughout the day.  £1 per entry.

 

Once again, wood fired pizzas will be on sale during the day, and homemade cakes and drinks will be available in the Village Hall.

 

Important Information

 

There is a £1 entry fee for adults, kids’ entry is free.  All proceeds raised are in aid of North West English Springer Spaniel Rescue.

 

Parking is free.  Please follow our attendant’s instructions and park in the designated area of the field.  Remember the ground is uneven on the field so please be careful.

 

Please note there is no camping available on site, and no picnics are allowed in the Village Hall car park. 

 

Please bring your own chair (or picnic rug) if you wish, as there won’t be any on the field, sorry.

 

Please keep your dog on a lead unless taking part in a have-a-go activity.  Sorry, no dogs are allowed in the Village Hall.

 

PLEASE HELP US TO CLEAR UP BY PLACING YOUR AND YOUR DOG’S LITTER IN THE BIN BAGS PROVIDED.  POOP BAGS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOG SHOW ENTRY TENT AND THE NWESSR STAND IF YOU FORGET YOUR OWN.

 

Remember it is CASH ONLY, so please make sure you bring plenty of change with you.

Can you help us?

 

This event is only possible with the hard work of our volunteers, and we desperately need more people to help out on the day.  If you can help to set up, can help out with the activities or on a stand, can offer a prize for the raffle/tombola, or can bake some cakes or biscuits to sell, please email: dogsdayout@englishspringerrescue.co.uk.

 

If you are kindly intending to bring along cakes or biscuits on the day, it would be useful to know what you will be bringing – just so that we can plan accordingly!

 

A few of our lovely supporters are already busy making things to sell at the event, e.g. the fabulous dog jumpers we’ve already shared with you, and these brilliant dog advent calendars – which are even reusable!

 

The postcode for Lower Withington Village Hall (and fields), Cheshire is SK11 9DX.

 

We’re really looking forward to seeing you there!
