“May day, May day” Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust is calling for local families to visit Robinswood Hill Country Park for a free family event discovering and exploring nature, alongside a fun dog show, organised by Teckels Animal Sanctuaries.

“There’ll be small mammal trapping looking for mice and voles, pond dipping, mini beast hunts and owl pellet dissection”, said Gloucester Community Wildlife Officer, Nicky Simpson. “Robinswood Hill is a fantastic local country park and a great place to have fun and explore nature with the whole family.”

The Nature Adventure and Fun Dog Show event takes place on Sunday 1st May, 12pm – 3pm. Wildlife activities by Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, in partnership with the Friends of Robinswood Hill, will accompany the dog show by Teckels Animal Sanctuaries, which will feature categories to suit every canine.

The organisers are keen for this free and fun event to also show how dog owners and Gloucestershire Widlife Trust can work together for their local wildlife. “We love that dog owners use Robinswood Hill so much. We want them to feel welcome, while showcasing our ongoing conservation work, and how responsible dog ownership can make a huge difference to local wildlife” continued Nicky Simpson.


Bring your dog along to enter a variety of fun dog show classes or the timed ‘scurry’. Classes are £1 per dog, entered on the day. The following categories will be up for grabs;

• Prettiest female
• Most handsome male
• Best veteran 6+ years
• Waggiest tail
• Best child handler
• Dog most like their owner
• Dog the judge would like to take home
.. plus best in show

The Police and Police Cadets will be on hand to postcode mark bikes so whether you’re bringing a beloved pooch along or not, why not leave the car at home and walk or cycle to the event?
