Dog walk - RSPCA Wrexham District & Deeside BranchDogs from across North East Wales have been invited to put their best paw forward, for a free-of-charge RSPCA branch Big Walkies event this weekend (Sunday 16 December).

The RSPCA’s Wrexham & Deeside branch has teamed-up with Barks Boot Camp to host the mass Wepre Park dog walk, in Connah’s Quay, Flintshire.

Registration is free and begins at 10am, before the dog walk starts at 10.30am. It is estimated that the walk will take between 45 minutes and one hour for owners and their canine companions to complete.

Dogs and their owners simply need to turn up at Wepre Park on Sunday, register with the RSPCA Wrexham & Deeside branch team and join in the fun, festive and free walk.

More information is available through the branch’s Facebook page, or via email at admin@rspca-wrexhamdeeside.org.uk. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times during the walk.

Volunteer and Events Officer Dylan Evans said: “As we get into the Christmas spirit in North Wales, Big Walkies offers a great opportunity to enjoy a social dog walk with other outgoing canines and owners!

“We’re urging dog owners from across the region and beyond to head over to Wepre Park on Sunday (16 December) for 10am, and join the festivities.

“The event is free – and a great opportunity to meet other dog owners; and enjoy some stunning surroundings.”
