Is your dog the best sausage catcher? Does he or she have the waggiest tail or the most appealing eyes?! If so join the Weedon team, who are once again running the extremely successful Fun Dog Show, at the Weedon Weekender event.  

Capitalising on the success of the past 2 years, Weedon Sports Association is once again organising the weekend long festival that Weedon has become famous for! It’s a Seaside theme this year for the exciting community event, so come along and spend some quality time with your family and friends!
