Entries are now being invited for a knitted dog coat - with the jackets to be donated to Berwick Animal Rescue Kennels (BARK).

Jane Cook, joint secretary of the industrial section of the Glendale Horticultural and Industrial Society, said: “I am delighted that we have included the knitted dog coat class in this year’s schedule and, as a standalone organisation, we are very pleased to be donating the coats to BARK.

“The charity was founded in October 2000 and has since then offered temporary accommodation and veterinary treatment to every domestic animal in need.

“These coats will not only provide warmth to the dogs, but could provide comfort to those who may have had a hard time and need to feel secure.

“Every year entries in the industrial section are of a very high standard, portraying just how creative and talented the people of Glendale are.

“There are classes from complete beginners to those with a lifelong skill. As part of the baking section, we have a ‘disaster class’, so if an entry doesn’t turn out the way you planned, there is still a class to enter!”

The Glendale Show takes places on Bank Holiday Monday, August 27. Entries must be received by August 22. More information at
