Dogs lead the way at Fressingfield charity walk
It is a tradition that helps to see in the new year and raises thousands of pounds for good causes as a small army of dogs takes over a picturesque village.
Today saw the 23rd annual charity dog walk at Fressingfield, near Harleston, with about 100 people registering to take their pets on a five mile walk around the village in aid of East Anglia's Children's Hospices.
The walkers set off on their circular ramble from the Fressingfield Swan pub, where a free bowl of soup and rolls awaited the participants at the finish line.
Today's event was also the last walk to be organised by Steve and Carol Wyatt, who over the years have helped to raise tens of thousands of pounds for good causes such as Macmillan Cancer Support and Help for Heroes.
Last year's walk raised £2,700 for the hospices charity and the couple are hopeful of reaching that target again.
