Sorry, folks , the organiser has just emailed to see they don't have enough people to run the event so have cancelled
On Sunday 29th July Newfound Friends will be here at Hythe Marina simulating some real-life rescues, but with a difference! Exact Times TBC.
We asked them to give a brief insight.
"Newfound Friends was formed nearly 30 years ago in 1989, with the objective of using the skills of the Newfoundland Dog to raise money for children's' charities. The group has gone from strength to strength and we are now a registered charity having raised thousands of pounds for charities across the years. Newfound friends use the Newfoundland Dogs to perform water rescues by simulating real-life rescues.
The dogs are renowned for their power in the water and have been known to pull in boats and as many as 10 people at a time. The dogs are all really friendly and love to meet and greet their rescue once back on dry land. So be brave, take the plunge and help us raise some funds for some great causes."
