Virtual Dog Show!

We’ve gone online for Cotford’s Annual Dog Show!

We love putting on the annual dog show for Cotford St Luke and since we cannot get together up on the village green this year, we decided we would go online.🌎💻

📷 The idea is that you email us photos of your dog and tell us which class you want to enter (you can enter as many classes as you want).

We will post your entry on our Facebook page and encourage people to like their favourite in each class. The entry with the most likes in a class on the closing date will win! The show will finish on June 27th, with winners being declared soon after. We are thinking about putting all the class winners into a Best In Show class that runs until July 4th – has anybody got any ideas about a suitable prize for that?

The classes you can enter are:

  1. Handsome Boy
  2. Gorgeous Girl
  3. Cute Puppy
  4. Fancy Dress
  5. Most Appealing Face
  6. Best Action Shot
  7. Caught in the Act (pictured doing something naughty or funny)
  8. In A Special Place (e.g. armchair)
  9. Just Good Friends (with another of your pets)
  10. Best Pet (no dogs in this category, its for any other pet).

Note that classes (1) to (8) are for dogs only and class (9) is for a dog and another of your pets together. Any pet, except dogs, can be entered into class 10.

To enter, send an email to enter@cotforddogshow.org with photos and details of the classes you are entering. Please don’t send pictures that include people.

We need to raise funds for the maintenance of St Luke’s Centre, so we are asking for donations to be made via PayPal. The donation amount for entering one class is £2.50, for two classes it is £4.50, for three £6.50, four £8.20 and for five the donation is £10. If you consider us friends, which I hope you do, donating to friends and family means no fees to pay!

😁 Please send your donation to https://paypal.me/cotforddogshow

The prizes are vouchers to spend at Quantock Pet & Equine (Bishops Lydeard), who have kindly sponsored this event. Thank you Quantock Pet & Equine. 😀💖

We hope you enjoy this event, and please share it with your friends because anybody with a pet can enter!

News

News from Hillfarrance – As you are probably aware, churches were allowed to be open for private prayer and funerals from 15th June. The PCC of Hillfarrance has come to the decision that we are sadly not in a position to open Holy Cross yet because the regulations with which we must comply are too onerous, especially given the fact that most of us fall into the vulnerable category. We will obviously review this when we reach the next stage in the easing of lockdown. You may already be aware that the same decision was made by the PCC at Oake about St Bartholomew’s Church.
