Around 70 dogs and their owners attended the first community event of its kind on Saturday - as an organisation gears up to improve the cleanliness of Slough's parks.

The Fun Dog Show event, at Britwell Parish Community Centre, saw hundreds of pet lovers turnout for the 12 different classes.

A barbecue, cake stall and Tombola was also run by the First Britwell Scouts group - and the RSPCA was on hand to chip anyone's dogs.

It was organised by Slough Dogsbody, a community group set up by a number of owners who were upset with the way some people were not clearing up after their pets in the town's parks.

Lorraine Gibbons, chair, said: "For our first event I am very pleased indeed.

"We had lots of lovely feedback."
