More Summer Roadshows…
The Radio Glan Clwyd Outside Broadcast Team were on duty at the Dyserth Pet Rescue Annual Dog Show, which took place on Sunday 9 July 2017 at Llewerllydd Farm. Chris Ruane MP opened the event at around 11am, and the day’s competitions began. He is photographed above with brothers Callum and Jacob, and more importantly, their dog, Bailey.
Owners could enter their dogs into as many of the day’s categories as they wished. The competitions included waggiest tail, best dog, best sitter, best rescue, dog most like the owner, best fancy dress, and best 6 legs (dog + owner!). Of course at the end of the day, the ‘best in show’ was awarded. Johanna was the judge; she had her work well and truly cut out given the numerous entrants in each category. She is photographed with presenter Ceri Jones, and the dog and owner who were awarded the ‘Best in Show’ prize (bottom right).
As well as the dog show, there was a car boot sale, face painting, bouncy castle, stalls and exhibitions. The ‘Good Companions Dog Training Club’ were also present (photo above, right), and gave demonstrations throughout the day. They also had their ‘fun run’ and ‘pet proficiency’ course for the dogs to try. Radio Glan Clwyd presenters Tony Mannix, Andy Hayes and Ceri Jones were on duty throughout the day. Tony was in charge of the music, Andy was announcing the competitions, and Ceri worked hard interviewing the dog owners in each category. Radio Glan Clwyd committee members Olga and Eugene were also working hard manning the stall. A big thank you to everyone that came along to the event, and a huge congratulations to all of the winners. Find out more about the Pet Rescue Welfare Association on their website.
On Friday 14 July, the Radio Glan Clwyd team were on duty at Ysgol Mair in Rhyl to help them celebrate their Summer Fun day. The poor headmaster was being soaked by sponges as the children had the chance to get their own back on him for all of those punishments! The RNLI were also in attendance, and there were stalls and competitions for everyone to take part in.
