Havering’s first ‘Mayors Walkies’ was held at the end of August at Dagnam Park, Harold Hill.
Hundreds of owners and their four legged canine fur babies came out to walk around the beautiful park to raise money for the Mayor’s charities.
On a blustery Sunday, the dog owners were treated to special ‘doggie bags’ after their walk, that included dog treats and a certificate to mark their special achievement.
The walk lasted just under an hour and the dogs enjoyed the beautiful settings that included seeing many deer on the ground.
The event was organised by Councillor Ciaran White, a Hylands Ward Councillor who works for Havering Mind and helped raise money for the Mayor’s charities.
Participating on the dog walk was Harold Hill Councillor Jan Sargent, who is part of ‘the Friends of Dagnam Park’, she told The Enquirer: “It was a great pleasure to have welcomed our Mayor and Mayoress to Dagnam Park for their Dog Walkie fund-raising event.
“Both the Mayor and his wife showed great interest in hearing the work the Friends of Dagnam Park have being doing.
“The day went really well, all the doggies had a great time and behaved really well.
It was fantastic for us to show everyone how special and sacred our park is, not only for us here in Harold Hill but for the whole of Havering.
“Participating on the dog walk was local resident Hazel Gibbons, who said: “Chelsea and Zach had a great time meeting their doggy friends and making new ones. The surroundings were magnificent, plenty of deer running around and hopefully it will encourage more people to visit the Manor.”
