Essex Dog Day 2012 on Feelgood Saturday

Was a pleasure to sit in for Alan this week on the Feelgood Saturday.

Thanks to Sarah Courage and Roy Dyer for coming into Phoenix FM to tell us all about the Essex Dog Day event to be held in the beautiful grounds of Crix, a privately owned Georgian house accessed directly off the A12, on Sunday 26th August.

This is the 2nd Essex event, this year supported by Tollhurst Fisher LLP Solicitors and The Spring Lodge Veterinary Group, and it promises to be a fantastic dog event and a great day out for all the family, especially their pooches!

Celebrity Crufts commentator Peter Purves will keep you abreast of the action including displays by the Essex Dog Display Team, Gun and Fun Dog Scurries, Sheepdog and Husky Demonstrations, a Security Dog Display and Falconry.

And there are competitions for you to enter. Full details on

The event is to raise funds for PARC Essex. PARC is a charity that provides vital support to families with children with special needs at the only purpose built centre in Essex. This care helps to keep families together and extends to all children across the county with physical and learning difficulties from birth to 19 years. Since PARC’s foundation in 1997, thousands of children have found a safe and secure environment to learn through play led by fully trained and dedicated staff.

Sarah outlined the whole event for us on Phoenix FM, whilst Roy Dyer gave us a real insight into the many issues and benefits of having a dog as part of the family.
