“Our Late Sum­mer Show prom­ises to be a fun day out for all the fam­ily, with lots on of­fer in­clud­ing our Kids Zone, a clas­sic car dis­play, and lots of de­li­cious food stalls.

Hear­ing Dogs for Deaf Peo­ple is a na­tional char­ity which trains clever dogs to alert deaf peo­ple to vi­tal sounds such as the door­bell, fire alarm and alarm clock.

The char­ity re­ceives no gov­ern­ment fund­ing, and all funds raised at the Late Sum­mer Show will help train more hear­ing dogs for deaf adults and chil­dren.

The Late Sum­mer Show will be held at The Grange in Saun­der­ton, Buck­ing­hamshire, on Sun­day from 11am to 4pm.

Ad­mis­sion prices are £4 for chil­dren and £7 for adults, with fam­ily tick­ets cost­ing £20.

Tak­ing part in a Spooky Sprint for the third time, The Cheeky Girls, Gabriela and Mon­ica Irimia, said: “We are ex­cited and hon­oured to launch Spooky Sprint in Ayles­bury.

“Our grand­mother had Parkin­son's and sadly we saw her con­di­tion de­te­ri­o­rate to the point where she couldn't hold a cup by her­self and our grand­fa­ther had to help her.

“That's why it's re­ally im­por­tant we all fight for a cure and sup­port the fan­tas­tic work that Parkin­son's UK does.

“We'd like to in­vite ev­ery­one to come up with their cheeki­est, spook­i­est cos­tumes and run with us for this great cause.”

Start­ing at 7pm, run­ners can choose from a 5k or 10k dis­tance.

There is also a 500m fam­ily fun run that starts at 6pm so chil­dren can get in­volved in the fancy dress ac­tion.

All run­ners will re­ceive a glow-inthe-dark fin­ish­ers' medal as well as a
