Just a quick heads up that this Sunday (17th July 2016), there’s to be a Summer Fair and Dog Show at Chasewater – the whole thing runs from 10am until 4pm, with registration for the Dog Show taking place from 11am and the show itself at 2:30pm.
The fair features a variety of craft and food stalls for all to enjoy – this is at the same time as the Powerboat Grand Prix is running too, so there will be plenty to see and do.
The dog show is just a quid per entry per class, and features categories we can all get behind – laggiest tail, most appealing eyes, most handsome, prettiest bitch (!), best junior handler etc.
Walsall RSPCA who are organising the show, had this to say:

This event is well worth a punt if you’re at a loose end – and there’s always the Chasewater Railway while you’re up there. I must say, the Cafe at the station does a cracking butty.
