So, this Saturday just gone, we went to the Collingbourne K9 Festival at Parsonage Farm in Wiltshire... And we had a super day and met some really wonderful people!! Sadly, the turn-out was hampered by a terrible crash which shut the M4 (the main road in) which meant that the Guinness World Record attempt was out... :( but everyone still did a practice sit!! Lee and our jumper model 'Bruno' even joined in much to the amusement of the crowds!
Claire Lingard, the festival organiser, really did a fantastic job organising the day & there were so many lovely stalls and amusements for the children - including bouncy castles & a laser-quest!! The show had a great country feel to it with haybales to sit on around the ring & even cider! We saw the lovely ladies from Dog's Trust Salisbury again which was brilliant - we had met Lucy's little doggie at Kenilworth but this time Lesley's little bundle of fun came along too :)
Another pair of lovely ladies we met were Sarah & her mum Jennie from The Enchanted Tree. We had a good ol' natter & giggle with them & bought a gorgeous mobile of hens for our kitchen. All their items are fair-trade & our little hens were made by a women's co-operative in Kenya :) . The site is the-enchanted-tree.co.uk & is soooo worth a visit! Brilliant prices & a great range of goods from mobiles to shopping bags to hand knitted kenyan toys! Plus all natural & ethical too - what more could you ask for?! Here's a sneaky preview of 2 of our faves and see more pics & our hens after the jump... xx >>
