A new dog grooming parlour held its grand opening in Brassey Parade, Hampden Park.
MP Caroline Ansell was the special guest.
Mrs Ansell officially opened Dashing Doodles Dog Grooming on behalf of owners Ross and Shannon Cornford, who also took the opportunity to raise some cash for the local animal charity, Waifs and Strays.
Ross and Shannon said, “Caroline Ansell was delighted to come along and see our new local, independent business take off.
“We were also raising money for local animal charity Waifs and Strays.
“It was a real success.
“We were also offering free face painting for the children and free treats for the dogs. and giving out £5 vouchers off your first grooming.”
