**** POSTPONED*****

A firm favourite with all our supporters. The Great Global Greyhound Walk is an annual event which aims to raise the profile of rescued and retired sighthounds. Walks take place all over the world and our walk has been the largest several years in a row, with 224 dogs joining us in 2019! 

Leaving the kennels at 10.30am, we host a regular walk and a short walk over the beautiful Surrey Hills countryside. All breeds of dog are welcome (must be kept on lead at all times.)

On return there will be plenty of refreshments, and we will be holding a raffle. Paddling pools and lovely shady areas for the dogs to chill out in plenty of space.

For more information about the walk visit the GGGW website.
