  1. The South Wales Dog and Family Fun Day 2014 at Whitsun

    We have been advised of the following details about a ‘yellow dog friendly’ event (so if your dog is getting on a bit, or still learning puppy training, or recovering from an op etc. (we knew all about this with Hamish – bless him) you should all still be able to enjoy a day out together.:
    The South Wales Dog and Family Fun Day 2014 promises to be Wales’s must go to family event of the year, held on Bank Holiday Monday 26th May 2014 at Fonmon Castle Show Ground, Rhoose in the Vale of Glamorgan. It’s a superb level site with good access and drainage. Fonmon is on the M4 Cardiff to Swansea corridor and near to Cardiff International Airport. Fonmon Castle, as a venue, provides a proven high catchment area including Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan, Swansea, Newport, Bridgend and the Valleys.
