Over the August Bank Holiday a Team of Spring Lodge Nurses and Nursing Assistants attended and ran our ’20th Birthday Celebration Marquee’ at the Essex Dog day event held in Hatfield Peverel.  We were also the Vets On Call for the day and Neil Hodson, the Practice Principle was available all day for any help and advice required.

The event attracted over 8000 visitors on the day who had the opportunity to take part in a dog show, try out agility and watch lots of dog themed displays.


Spring Lodge hosted a marquee which allowed the 200 ticket winners from our 20th Birthday Competition to meet us and have refreshments which included wonderful cakes and a glass of bubbley!  All of our refreshments were made by our talented nurses and reception staff .


It was wonderful to meet our clients and their dogs on the day as we often only meet them in worrying, stressful situations in the veterinary practice. 

We ran several competitions on the day and gave away some fantastic prizes .  All money raised on the day, which totalled £400,  will be donated to charity.  Thank you to everyone who entered and we hope you (or your dogs) are enjoying your prizes.
