A country fair and dog show got the thumbs-up from visitors at the weekend. 

The Clapton-in-Gordano Dog Show, hosted by Sperrings Equestrian, saw pet owners flock to the arena to show off their pooches with the waggiest tail, best trick and the canine with the finest moves on Saturday.

"These were just some of many attractions at the fair; we also sold refreshments, homemade cakes, handmade ice cream, fresh eggs and gifts, the Country Cabin gift shop was open, local artists exhibited their work and we had a children’s corner with Reggie the Shetland pony.

"It was lovely to see families enjoying themselves out in the countryside in the sunshine and fresh air.”
