The Ellingham Show cancelled due to dangerously high winds forecast

It is sad to report that The Ellingham Show, which has been running since 1947, has been regrettably cancelled tonight, due to the weather forecast for Saturday. Dangerously high winds are forecast for the area from Friday and through until Saturday night, making the decision to cancel the wonderful event on safety grounds.

We hope to be part of the show in 2020. We thank all the volunteers who have spent months organising the event and are sorry to hear the news this evening.

We are not having much luck this year with the weather, this is the second event that has been cancelled due to the wind this year. Lets hope it doesn’t come in 3’s!

What a wonderful weekend at Dogstival!

So its been a particularly busy time for Forget-Me-Nots Keepsakes, not that we are complaining! With the launch of the website, getting ready for our first event ever and ensuring we had everything up together to take the precious paw prints at Dogstival, I couldn’t have been more bowled over by the feedback and comments from everyone we met at the show. It was immense! And a huge thank you to those of you who entrusted us to take those all important prints of your beloved fur babies.

We have been busy since, crafting those prints. Just a reminder that it is school half term this week, so I am trying to work around my little one, but we are making good progress!

With the next show this Sunday, we are looking forward to a busy and fun summer of events, meeting lots more fur babies and their hoomans!


We are going to be at PETFEST 2019!

We are very excited about being at another fab event this year. We will be at PetFest, a great event held in the beautiful surroundings of Highcliffe Castle in Dorset on Sunday 8th September.

The event promises a multitude of trade stands offering everything from nutritious and tasteful treats to personalised pet accessories. There will also be a fun dog competition to see who is crowned Highcliffe Dog of the Year, a petting farm and birds of prey on display. A great day out for all the family, not just your fur babies!

Come along and say hi, we would love to meet you!
