Wollescote Park hosts Bark in the Park dog show again

CELEBRATIONS to mark Wollescote Park’s 90th anniversary will include a family fun dog show and a performance by the Midland Freight Orchestra.

The Friends of Wollescote Park will be holding their Bark in the Park dog show at Stevens Park on Saturday 14th May.

The event, which kicks off at 11 a.m. with a Golden Oldies class, will include classes for the cutest dog, cutest puppy, dog costumes and best in show with the top prize of a family ticket to the Dudley Zoo.

There will also be homemade cakes and refreshments available at the pop-up volunteer cafe, a dog-themed raffle, craft stalls and children’s activities.

Organizer Julia Marks said: “We had a fantastic day in 2019, all classes were well attended and it was great to see so many people and their pets enjoying the event together.

“We look forward to an even better day this year, having faced cancellations in the past due to Hurricane Callum and Covid-19, the event supports many good charitable causes – Monarch Mutts, Greyhound Trust , PDSA, We LoveCarers.”

She said more information and a full list of courses can be found on the Friends of Wollescote Park Facebook page.

The money raised will support the Friends group’s latest projects which will see new play equipment installed at the end of June and a defibrillator for the park.
