Long Ashton's Bark In The Park also saw a celebrity TV presenter judge the event this month.

Organiser Jenny Green announced the total funds raised on social media, which came to £905, on Wednesday.

The cash raised will go to the Barrow Gurney charity rescuing and rehoming dogs and cats.

Jenny said: "On behalf of the village market, I want to say a huge thank you to the people who supported Bark In The Park at Long Ashton Community Centre on July 13.

"A big thank you also goes to our judges, including BBC One's The One Show wildlife presenter Mike Dilger and his dog Bramble.

"I'd also like to give a big shout out to all the fabulous volunteers who helped on the day, and we couldn't of pulled it off without all your hard work."
