The proceeds went towards the Poppy Appeal, and Stevenage Dog Watch were delighted to raise more than £600 for the charity.

On the day, visitors and their tail-wagging friends enjoyed a dog show, agility course and a variety of other entertainment stalls at Stevenage Town Centre Gardens.

Despite it being a tiring affair for organiser Paul Haxby, he did describe it as "a great day."

And Paul is not alone - it was agreed by many on the day that it was a lovely event.

Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland said: "Another brilliant day at Stevenage DogWatch's fun day.

"A big thank you to all the volunteers who make it happen and wonderful charities that come along."
