POOCHES did battle to find the prettiest and the most handsome in the area when a Fenland village held its first dog show on Sunday.
The successful Coldham Dog Show and Fun Day held on the playing field in Station Road was organised by Coldham Residents Action Group and raised around £435.
The idea behind the event was to bring the community together and offer a fun day for all. Money raised will go towards providing the community with a new village hall.
There were lots of entries in the dog show and the agility obstacles proved a big hit with dogs and their owners. Categories included: best puppy, best rescue dog, best veteran, prettiest bitch, most handsome dog and best junior handler. There were also classes for the dog with the waggiest tail and the dog which looks most like its owner.

A car boot sale, bouncy castle and refreshment stalls also helped to boost the total.
Currently the village has two portable cabins which it is hoped can be transformed into a suitable venue for use by local organisations.
- 1 Murder suspect is victim's son
- 2 Widow of High Court judge, 77, charged with historical sexual abuse
- 3 Pervert filmed himself having sex with girl, 14, and then shared video online
- 4 'Disbelief’ for disability centre after staff member’s scooter is stolen
- 5 Man suspected to have stolen '£300-400' of alcohol in store theft
- 6 Suspected drink lorry driver threw whiskey and wine bottle from cab
- 7 Class B drug factory discovered following British Gas search warrant
- 8 Commuter chaos as van blaze causes miles of congestion
- 9 'Unreasonable behaviour' means Steve must pay council's costs of failed appeal
- 10 Hairdressing student is best of 1,000 after winning national competition
There are plans to convert the two cabins into one space with new toilet and kitchen facilities. Cost of the project will be around £60,000 and almost half of that amount has been raised during recent years.
