Tails wag at town’s ‘in­cred­i­ble’ day out

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

MORE than 500 peo­ple flocked to Ger­rards Cross on Sun­day for an ‘in­cred­i­ble’ day out.

The Me­mo­rial Cen­tre, on East Com­mon, was the venue for the an­nual dog show and fam­ily fun day, which left the or­gan­is­ers de­lighted.

Ken Piercy, di­rec­tor of ser­vices at the me­mo­rial cen­tre, said: “It was in­cred­i­ble.

“We had more than 500 peo­ple through the doors, which was as­ton­ish­ing.”

He added: “We’ve never had that many peo­ple be­fore.”

Rev­ellers were treated to a ‘fan­tas­tic’ dog agility show, and there were bouncy cas­tles and face paint­ing, which Mr Piercy de­scribed as ‘re­ally good fun’.

“Ev­ery­one re­ally en­joyed it,” he added.

Mr Piercy said such events were im­por­tant for the vil­lage, bring­ing peo­ple to­gether to cre­ate a com­mu­nity and it’s also fun for fam­i­lies and peo­ple of all ages.

“We have to do these sort of things.

“That’s why we’re here,” he said.

He added: “It’s nice to get 500 peo­ple on site. It’s re­ally good.

“We’ll do it ev­ery year.”
