A FUN dog show and an insect display were just two of the attractions at an animal event in Shipley Country Park on Sunday.

For dog lovers there were demonstrations of dog agility and have-a-go sessions by Ilkeston District Dog Training Club.

Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Entomological Society gave visitors to the free event the chance to hold and observe creepy crawlies.

All the activities, including the fun dog show, took place near the visitor centre off Slack Lane.

The event was organised by Derbyshire County Council to promote awareness of wild animal welfare and responsible pet ownership and featured stands by the RSPCA and the authority’s countryside service.
