The Papillon (Butterfly Dog) Club held their Open Show at Papfest. A weekend of Papillon related activities for the show exhibitors and Agility enthusiasts. The club thanks Denise Welch for organising the agility. Competitors came as far away as Sussex and North Wales in addition to some local ones around the Newark area.
