Our Gobowen campus erupted into life over the weekend of 25–26 May as visitors poured in to experience the annual fete and dog show.

Visitors from far and wide came to support Derwen College and its students.

The event offered a bustling array of family-friendly entertainment, and raised an incredible amount of money which will be used to benefit the learners and residents of Derwen College.

The weekend’s attractions included the grand raffle, dog show, local artisanal stallholders and pet care services, games, refreshments, live music and more.

Despite the gloomy forecast and a brief showering of rain, Sunday’s dog show delivered on its promise to bring the pet-loving community together with a fantastic day of entertainment. The turnout was brilliant with over 60 teams of handlers and pups defying the weather to compete and show off their talents.

With the help of college staff over the weekend, and the months leading up to it everybody got involved to make the event special.

Derwen College Events Organiser and Community Fundraiser, Megan Charman, said “Watching the months of hard work pay off over the course of this weekend has been an absolute pleasure. There was a great atmosphere and it was lovely to see families take advantage of the space and facilities we have here.”
