It’s come back round again so quickly and all of a sudden it’s my fifth year hosting another annual Battersea Old Windsor Fun Day in association with my friends at Radio St. Helier, which is taking place this Saturday 4th July 2015. This is one of two highlight in the Battersea Dogs calendar that I’m involved in and the event will be packed with stalls, games and refreshments – and everyone is invited!!!
There’s lots of activities that I will be hosting for your four-legged friends including dog competitions for the greatest golden oldie, the dog who looks most like their owner and waggiest tail. Or, even if your pooch isn’t one for the limelight, there’s lots of games on offer including an opportunity for them to test their agility skills.
I’m there to entertain the crowds but for the kids, there will be lots of stalls to browse selling dog accessories, handmade jewellery and photography sessions. Treat yourself to something tasty from a selection of hot and cold food stands as well as cakes or popcorn. Children, or just the young at heart, can also enjoy a bouncy castle, face painting and a coconut shy.
10.30am until 4.30pm
*Please note the kennels and cattery will be closed on this day*
There will be a small entry fee to the event with all profits going towards the dogs and cats in Battersea’s care.
