Dog owners braving the bad weather to attend Scruffs event

First published in News

SCORES of dog owners and their pets braved the weather for the first day of an annual festival.

Rural day at St Ann's Well Garden, in Hove, included a Scruffs dog show featuring pets of all shapes and sizes.

There was also a range of activities and crafts.

The event was part of the Brunswick Festival, which celebrates the area’s diverse community.

Other attractions included conservation stalls, a brass band, puppet shows and food stalls and home bakes.

The fun continues this Saturday and Sunday with a two-day celebration at Brunswick Square in Hove.

This will feature live music, DJs, dance groups, circus skills, activities and a healing area.

There will also be a market area with bric-a-brac, home made goods, vintage clothes and charity information stands.

The festival has grown over the years from being a low key picnic on the green to encompassing two weekends of outdoor events.

But where does the money made go? We also hear that one well known dog charity has been banned because it may take money away from Scruffs. Thought the main idea was to benefit dogs rather than humans.
