Pets of a wide variety turned up to Bardsey church with their owners to be blessed.

All Hallows Church last Saturday staged a service of blessing to celebrate God’s creation, which was conducted by Rev Lynn Grey.

Many owners turned up with their various pets ranging from dogs, cats to the more exotic ones including a snake and tortoise. And activities and competitions were held, involving the pets.

Salls and refreshments were also available at the event which was organised by students of the Leeds Beckett University.
