Bark in the Park, run by pet charity Blue Cross, saw people from across the region enjoy carol singers, seasonal decorations, and Santa on Saturday, December 22, at Thetford High Lodge.

Abbi Lawrence, from Sudbury said: “It was a lovely event. The walk itself was made wonderful by the full moon shining down on us through the trees and the beautiful fairy lights scattered along the walk, so we knew we were going the right way!

“We heard that over 400 tickets were sold which is just amazing for such a worthwhile charity. My Jack Russell, Beagle, Manchester Terrier cross Jack and I live in Suffolk but travelled to the event as it looked such a good idea and we always enjoyed Blue Cross events.”
