Families, friends and dog lovers descended on a Mansfield park for an annual fun day.

Star attraction of The Friends of Fisher Lane Park fun day was a scruffs dog show, which had lots of awards for four-legged friends such as the dog with the waggiest tail, and most like their owner.

The park was bustling with activities for families too, with a climbing wall, craft and charity stalls, a children’s entertainer and traditional fair games.

The Friends group, which works with schools and other organisations, has been campaigning for new trail equipment to be installed in the park.
