A big thank you to our neighbours, Beese's Riverside Bar & Tea Gardens for their continuing support of Friends of Eastwood Farm.

In 2013 year Beese's donated money from sales of Beer Festival tickets and sales of 'Butcombe Hotdogs' throughout the year to Friends of Eastwood Farm and Friends of Troopers Hill. Ma & Pa Beese presented the cheques at the Dog Show on Easter Monday.

Beese's also dontated the stone for the steps down from the car park to Eastwood Farm. The steps had been constructed by volunteers from Lloyds Bank and the stone was placed by Community Payback.

We hope you enjoyed the show despite the cold weather!

It was great to see so many people and dogs enjoying themselves.

Many thanks to Friends of Troopers Hill and Jules our 'parkie' for their help. Thanks also to all those who ran stalls; Paula from WildCity and especially to all our funders as below. We hope to do it again next year on a warmer day.
