Stevenage dog owners thoroughly enjoyed this year’s installment of Doggie Day on Sunday.

The event - which is in its eighth year - was organised by Stevenage Dog Watch in partnership with Herts police.

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."
