PUBLISHED: 16:51 02 January 2019
It was a night to remember at the best Christmas party in town when March Dog Training Club invited its members to dress up their furry friends for the annual fancy dress competition.
Judged by guests Katie Knight and Michaela Henson, from Amical Veterinary Centre, the winner was Mary Higgins and her reindeer Shakti beating strong competition from lions, Christmas crackers, Christmas puddings and others.
After that followed games and the presentation of cheques of £400 each for Magpas and the East Anglian Air Ambulance which was raised at a sponsored walk held in September.
Pat Winfield said: “We are very grateful to the representatives of these charities who spent several hours with us and seemed to enjoy the party as much as we did.
“The evening continued with more games, a buffet, raffle and the presentation of the trophies which members compete for in December.”
The top trophy was won by Christine Kaye and her dog Albe with Jane Lake and Carly coming second. Other members to win recognition for their hard work were Julie Manchett, Claire Collins, Roger Kightly, Jane Perry, John Hire, Ben Wallis, Caroline Brown, Marion Giles, Lauren Plant and Connor Akers.
