Bromsgrove Blue Cross holding milestone fun day
4:20pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in Local
A CATSHILL animal adoption centre is inviting residents to a family fun day.
The Blue Cross centre in Wildmoor Lane wants animal lovers to join them at the annual fete being held on Saturday, August 31, from noon until 4pm.
This year's event will be the 25th held, so to mark the special milestone a number of attractions have been organised.
These include birds of prey, go karts, archery, drumming and circus skills workshops, children’s activities and a rock climbing wall.
Food fair stalls will also be offering a range of tasty treats including savoury pastries, homemade dips and Caribbean preserves to fudge, crepes and local cider.
The Tidbury Flyball Team will be performing in the main show ring, while visitors can have their dog's portrait taken by leading animal photographer, Nick Ridley, who will be on hand to take photos throughout the day.
The popular dog show returns with nine fun classes, including dog with the waggiest tail.
Entry is just 50p per class and rosettes and prizes will be given for first to sixth place. Judging starts at 1pm.
A special reunion grand parade for former Blue Cross dogs is being held at 12.50pm in the main show ring.
All money raised at the event goes to the charity and the Bromsgrove centre, which receives no government funding and relies on public donations to continue its vital work.
