The Carnival Committee would like to thank everyone who brought their owners to the Novelty Dog Show. It was great to see Somersham’s finest furry pals compete on Sunday 15th, for the title of Best In Show.
This Sunday sees the biggest event for our canine friends – the Novelty Dog Show.
Get down to Norwood Playing Fields (behind Victory Hall) with your dog on Sunday 16th June from 1pm. With eleven different classes, there should be at least one category for your trusty hound to compete in… including some that owners can join in with too!
