A SPONSORED dog walk and show is being held at Pennington Flash.

The Wigan, Leigh and District branch of the RSPCA have organised the walks which will start at 11am and 11.30am on September 21.

They will be followed by a dog show at 12.30pm where prizes will be awarded for categories such as the waggiest tales, best puppy and the best golden oldie.

To enter a dog will cost £1 per category with all proceeds going to the branch and there will also be entertainment such as face painting, children’s games and a book stall.
