A ‘pawsome’ day at the dog show

Wednesday 13 Jun 2018

Crufts came to Giggleswick on Sunday as pooches of all shapes, sizes and colors descended on Top Pitch with their owners for our first ever Dog Show & Shooting Day. The weather was perfect and the competition was intense with parents, staff and OGs proudly parading their pets. The hard task of judging fell to Richard Nelson from Windermere who scrutinized every perfectly preened pooch from Miniature Dachshunds, Spaniels and Bearded Collies to Labradors, Retrievers and Scottish Deer Hounds. After long deliberation, Skye the Flat Coated Retriever, owned by parent Carole Stephens, was crowned Giggleswick Show Champion.

The shooting was also a great success, with 10 visitors trying their hand at shooting clays for the first time and many hitting the target. Congratulations to Junior School parent Justin McChesney for hitting the most clays, winning a day shooting with Richard Warburton (OG).

Special thanks to Richard Warburton (OG) for his inspiration, organisation and support on the day, Mr Bellis for his entertaining commentary, and the I‘Anson’s for donating prizes for the Champion and Reserve. Refreshments were kindly supplied by the GSPA and ice creams provided by Yorkshire Peddlers were a huge hit on such a hot day.

Thanks to everyone involved and everyone attending, we managed to raise £380 for the Giggleswick School Annual Fund 2017/18.
