It’s time to say a fond farewell to the Snow­dogs of Ash­ford this week­end

There's the chance to say an emo­tional farewell to the Ash­ford Snow­dogs this week. The 35 colour­ful painted stat­ues of Ray­mond Brigg’s Snow­dogs - and 19 smaller Snow­pups - have been de­light­ing vis­i­tors to the town since Septem­ber. They’ve been part of an art trail around the town which has cap­tured peo­ple’s imag­i­na­tions and brought them their own fol­low­ing on Twit­ter.

How­ever, this week­end is the last be­fore they are auc­tioned to raise funds for the Pil­grims Hospice. You can see them to­gether at the Julie Rose Sta­dium in the town on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 1 and Sun­day, De­cem­ber 2, when they will be un­der starters’ or­ders on the run­ning track, and will be avail­able for self­ies.

They will then be auc­tioned on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 3 at Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel in an event led by TV auc­tion­eer Michael Hog­ben and Al­i­son Chap­man.
