MARCH St Peter’s Church was the venue on Sunday for a special service of thanksgiving for pets.

Around 15 owners took along their furry friends for the service conducted by the Rev Jenny Webb.

It was the second time the church has hosted such a special service and Jenny explained it was a great success.

She said it was largely dogs and rabbits that attended.

Some owners took along photos of their animals to be blessed rather than bring their nervous pets to the church. Pictures included those of cats and tortoises who might have found the service stressful to attend.

Candles were lit and prayers said for pets who had died.
