Spend Sunday in Old Buckenham

Come, buy and bring your dog
On Sunday 21 September, Old Buckenham will be putting on an event with a difference, incorporating a large garage sale, with over 30 venues within the village, together with a Dog Show with a difference sponsored by Rosedale Funeral Homes. The Dog Show profits are going towards the considerable restoration work on All Saint’s Church (at a cost of approximately £140,000 which includes extensive internal and external work on the tower, together with restoration of two stained medieval glass windows). Money raised from the garage sales, which commence at 10 am, is towards the Recreation Area at the rear of the village hall. Maps showing the location of the individual garage sales will available on the day from 10am outside the Church Rooms on Old Buckenham Green.
The Companion Dog Show will be held under Kennel Club rules, with registration commencing at 12 noon for judging at 2 pm. However, in the two hours between registration and competition, extensive entertainment will be available, including hot food produced by local butcher Tony Perkins and several trade stalls. There will be both adult and children’s tombola, special facilities to keep youngsters occupied, teas with cakes in the Church Rooms and of course a well stocked Ox and Plough. Many local businesses are supporting the event, which will be located on the Green outside the Ox and Plough public house.
The Dog Show will incorporate both pedigree and novelty fun classes (including the dog you would most like to take home but you can't). Prizes, sponsored by local business, and rosettes will be awarded to the top three dogs in each category with a special prize awarded to the Best in Show. Schedules are available from 01953 452538 or 01953 860692, email
It is intended to make this a fun-packed day of events with a difference. No doubt you have been to a Dog Show and a Village Fete, perhaps even a Garage Sale. Now why not come and try something different.
