The event raised £1,000 for PAWS (Pennine Animal Welfare Society)
This year's Wardle Village Fete & Dog Show has raised £1,000 for PAWS, the Pennine Animal Welfare Society.
Now in its seventh year, the event - opened on Saturday (11 September) by deputy Mayor Councillor Ali Ahmed - was a huge success attracting hundreds of visitors.
Organised by Michele Way from PAWS, and Rebecca Hilton from Craft Cottage, the event featured stalls, face painting, donkey rides, a mobile bar, food, birds of prey, and children's crafts.
Performances from Legacy Dance Academy and local performer Jacey-Mae, who sang and played the guitar, also took place.
The main attraction was the dog show, with Roch Valley Radio keeping everyone entertained for the day.
PAWS is a voluntary group which rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes dogs and cats in need.
Organiser Rebecca said: "After the last 18 months, and having to cancel last year's event, it was wonderful to see everyone out having fun."
