The 2019 show, the seventh annual show,  lived up to its description and was full of family fun!

As the gales and rain calmed, people arrived with their dogs to enjoy the afternoon. Owners and handlers entered into the spirit of the event and trotted with their dogs into as many classes and competitions as possible. This meant that our Judge, Lewis Phillips, from Oasis Grooming, South Molton was kept very busy - thank you very much Lewis!

The visitors enjoyed a happy, community event with cream teas, cakes, pimm's and beer, competitions and a raffle. Funds were being raised for St Margaret's Church and Stoodleigh Parish Hall towards much needed maintenance, repairs and improvements. Thanks to everyone's generosity £1125 will be shared between the two funds.

The organisers would like to thank West Ridge Veterinary Practice for sponsoring the event and the following businesses and residents who sponsored the classes - Heard & Sendell, Andrew & Lesley Thwaites, Canine Company Camp, Waterman's Country Supplies, Devon Osteo/Devon Pain Clinic, Steve Rolfe Oil Tank Installation Specialists, Nigel Hawke Thorne Farm Racing, Martyn Baker Livestock Ltd and Tracks of Exeter-Suzuki.

A great big thank you to Pat and Fred Robinson for the use of their paddock. The event was organised by the Church and Hall team but the event would not have gone ahead without the fantastic support from village volunteers - those who cheerfully transported equipment, helped set up, baked cakes and scones, ran stalls and competitions, acted as stewards and dismantled everything at the end of the day. What a great bunch - thank you!
