This year’s St. Lawrence Fair Pet Show on Sunday June 19 proved to be another great success.

Sponsored by Heath Veterinary Clinic in Burgess Hill and Hurstpierpoint, the local community and their pets joined the team from Heath Vets for fun, wags and wiggles.

Held at the Hurstpierpoint Guide Hut, the Pet Show entertained visitors with dogs of all shapes and sizes, guinea pigs, reptiles and even a couple of chickens!

The small pets’ competition was won by Lydia Babister with Scrambled and Pepper the chickens.

Second place went to Emelia Solomon with Henry and Hetty the Stick insects and third place was awarded to Lauren and Jacob Stenning with their guinea pig Katniss.

The Pat Venables Cup was too close to call and was awarded to joint winners Ethan Deeley with Thor the Bearded Dragon and Natalie Deeley with Loki the Grey Banded King Snake.

Youngsters, Connie and Evie, came third in both the Junior handler and The Wright Veteran Cup categories, with Sid the Greyhound.

Chief the Pomeranian, with owner Sita, won the Heath Cup for best condition.

Sarah Solomon, Practice Manager of Heath Vets, commented: “The show was a great success and lots of fun.

“We love being part of the community and The St. Lawrence Fair’s Pet Show is a fantastic way for people to show off their beloved pets and enjoy lots of tea and cake!”
