Only one week left for Pets on Parade

Share this article

Our Pets on Parade competition has one more week to run and we are still receiving a good pedigree of entries from owners across the Belper area.

The contest ends on Tuesday, August 20, so there is just one more week left for you to submit your picture of a perfect pooch or masterful moggy.

Alan and Sue Goodwin of Belper Lane, Belper, have entered their rescue Bengal cat- who they have aptly named Baby Girl.

Sue said: “She is so beautiful and such a daddy’s girl! I’m the one that needs a new home now!”

And Lotty McGarrity and her daughter Molly, from The Fleet, Belper, have entered their 14-week-old Lurcher called Woodstock.

They are both in with a chance of winning six months’ worth of free pet food, with second place receiving a three-month supply and third place a Husse Derbyshire hamper.

Editor Julie Crouch said: “We’ve had a wonderful response to this competition and our thanks goes out to everyone who submitted a picture.

“Initially, we were inundated with pictures of cute canines - and we had to appeal for more fantastic felines.

“Over the following months we have received a deluge of entries - and we have been taken aback by the depth of feeling our readers have for their pets.

“But for an animal lover like myself this competition has been an absolute pleasure to run.”

Send your entries in jpeg format by email to, or hard copies to Pets on Parade, Belper News, 8 Heanor Road, Ilkeston, Derbsyhire, DE7 8ER, or drop them off at our postbox at News Corner, King Street, Belper.

Just two pictures per pet and you MUST include your full name, address and day and evening contact numbers.

The competition is only open to cat and dog owners.

We will run entries that make the final at a later date when readers will be able to vote for their favourite.

The usual Belper News competition rules apply.

The deadline is 12pm on Wednesday August 21.
