THERE was plenty of furry fun at a Playhatch pub when ferrets stole the show during an action-packed event.

Charity STARescue’s sixth Annual Ferret Show attracted around 200 cute visitors, who completed a range of obstacle courses, races and showing classes at The Flowing Spring pub last Sunday.

The pub is only a mile from the charity’s Sonning headquarters, which takes in stray and abandoned ferrets before finding new homes for them.

Pub landlord Nick Willson said: “It went very well. We get all of the owners who have re-homed ferrets back for the show to fundraise for the charity, while also celebrating the work it does.”

Other attractions at the show, which raised £716.29p, included a bouncy castle, barbecue, and beer tent, and the wet weather failed to put visitors off, with nearly 100 people turning out in support.

It is the third time the show has been held at the pub, and Mr Willson, who runs the pub, said: “We were really happy with it. We had a brilliant turnout and there was a really nice atmosphere, even though the weather was a bit gloomy.

“We are more than happy to run the event and will do so for as long as we are here.”
