Dartmouth Woofstock given the go-ahead
SOUTH Hams Council has approved plans for a dog festival on Dartmouth’s Coronation Park.
Woofstock UK will go ahead on Saturday, August 5, next year.
The announcement was made by organiser Heather Nesbitt in a live video broadcast on Facebook this evening from her Blackawton home.
Ms Nesbitt said the approval came after Dartmouth district councillors Hilary Bastone, Jonathan Hawkins and Rosemary Rowe had contacted council officers and given their support to the festival.
She thanked friends, fellow dog lovers and Dartmouth business owners, including Simon and Theresa Hart, for their messages of support.
