Our events

We have various events going on throughout the year. We have a dog show and fete twice a year, we hold coffee mornings on a regular basis and hold lots of other events including bric-a-brac sales, events with other local companies and we are currently planning an open day.

Below are some of the events we have coming up in the coming months. We are always planning new events so keep checking back on this page, or on our blog, to see the new things we have planned.


trailhound off lead romp

We are again holding our popular trailhound meets on site.

Running monthly and starting on Sunday 10th March, this is a great opportunity to exercise your trailhound and let them run free.

Come along for 2.45pm and the gates will close at 3pm.

You can then let your trailhound run free with all their trailhound buddies and explore the site until the session ends around 4:30pm.

We ask for a small donation of £5 per household on the day and tea, coffee and cakes will be available at a small cost. All money raised will help us care for our animals. We also sell lots of pet goodies including food (what trailhound doesn’t like food!), so lots of bargains to be had.

This is always a great, fun day and the dogs and owners just love it. No need to book, just come along on the day. If you think you maybe interest in offering a trailhound a home, you are also welcome to come along and chat with some owners and meet some hounds.
