Sunday 22nd July - "Paws For Mary"
(Fun Dog Show and garden party/fete)

Seighford, Stafford, ST18 9PQ
To remember the late Mary Longsdon MBE.
As part of the planned July FPS celebrations to remember and celebrate the life of Mary, the Midlands West Group will be holding a fun dog show and garden party /fete. Dogs were very important to Mary and she was never without one and as often is the case in most Fell Pony homes, so what better to have them join us in all of the fun! We are also aware that not all of our members own Fell Ponies but quite a lot of them have do have dogs so our celebration will try to be all inclusive and in accordance with Mary's wishes for the Area Groups to be "Flexi, Friendly and Fun". We feel this event will incorporate all of this and we do hope you will not only support this event, and indeed other Areas Group's events, but will also remember the remarkable and inspirational Mary.

We are looking for volunteers to help on the day with areas such a tombola, stalls, light refreshments etc Any help would be greatly appreciated or if you cannot attend any gifts we can utilise for the tombola or prizes would also be welcome.
Contact is Diane Key 01785 282922.
