There will also be lots of fun activities to take part in, including a Hobby Horse Gymkhana, Egg Collecting, making Cat Toys and playing the Rabbit Game.

Country Fayre 2018

That’s not all - the Novelty Dog show starts at 12:00 with classes for all breeds to take part in. Do you have the Best condition Male or Female, does your pup have the waggiest tail, is your dog an MGAR rescue – there’s classes for them too! Perhaps your dog does some nifty tricks or has the most appealing eyes that would melt any heart? All these classes and more will be open to enter on the day.

We will be welcoming a selection of Dorset’s finest with local crafts, produce and refreshments, not to mention our giant tombola with fabulous prizes. There’ll also be a selection of vintage cars on display, emergency service vehicles, birds of prey and musical entertainment. Oh and they’ll be hay bales to sit on and relax to give a real country feel as you sip your cider.

There are also 3 great competitions to enter in the lead up to Country Fayre, where you can win a behind the scenes tour of MGAR Church Knowle Rehoming and Visitor Centre, as well as social media fame and possibly the chance to see your photos used on future MGAR promotions!
