Related topics: Community

Oak Farm, which offers training in agricultural and horticultural work to people with learning disabilities, will next month be hosting a fabulous “Family Fun Dog Show”.

Oak Farm is situated right in the heart of Ditton Priors and is supported by Shropshire Council.

Everyone is welcome to come along to this great family day out in Ditton Priors, which is nestled at the foot of the Brown Clee, the highest hill in Shropshire.

The Ditton Priors County Fayre and Dog Show at Oak Farm will take place on Saturday 5 September 2015 between 12 midday and 5pm. Admission is £2 and is payable on the gate.

The Dog Show, which begins at 2.30pm, carries an entry fee of £1.50 per class, of which there are nine. Junior handlers gain free entry into the dog classes and registration is open from 12 midday until 2.15pm.

However, the Dog Show is not the only attraction at this year’s fayre. Trade stands, local craft stalls and afternoon tea will be available. There will also be a barbeque and bar with musical entertainment on offer to all those who attend. Visitors are also encouraged to visit the heritage centre and Willows Café.

Lee Chapman, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for adult services, said:

“Oak Farm is a fantastic place that recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. The people who attend Oak Farm are all part of the community, and hosting the fayre brings local people in to share the experience. It’s also a great opportunity to showcase what Oak Farm has to offer; I would encourage everyone to attend.”

If you wish to set up a stall at the fayre then call 01746 712423 or email sarah.jonesald@shropshire.gov.uk by Wednesday 2 September 2015. Stalls are £5 each.
