A call has gone out for businesses to take part in a Bury St Edmunds dog and family show next month.

Paws in the Park, in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care, will be held for the first time at Hardwick Heath on Sunday, May 22.

Organisers are appealing for more trade stands to join the canine-related businesses taking part.

Businesses already having stands include a dog and human chiropractor; dog portrait photographer; pet accessories and a holidays for dogs firm, but there is plenty of room for more.

Charlie Ruddock, hospice events administrator, said: “While we’ve already got a great range of doggy-themed stands signed up we would like to see even more, and a wide range of businesses.

“I’m particularly keen to have a few more children’s rides and activities there on the day.”

Trade stand pitches cost £30.

For more information or to book, contact Charlie at charlotte.ruddock@stnh.org.uk or call 01284 715583.

Paws in the Park will be open from 11am to 4pm on Sunday, May 22 with three arenas of entertainment and a dog show.

Tickets cost £4 adults and £2.50 per child with a family ticket (two adults and two children) for £12. To buy tickets or enter the dog show (£1 per class), visit www.stnicholashospicecare.org.uk

The hospice has to raise £11,000 every day to provide its vital services for people with long term and life-threatening illnesses.
