Water Safety Awareness Demonstration, Rother Valley Country Park.

August 1 2021

Rother Valley Working Newfoundland’s were approached by the Fire and Rescue services to see if we would take part in their water awareness day at Rother Valley Country Park. This was to help raise money for throw lines to be located around the lakes and reservoirs in the Rotherham area. Despite a rainy slow start to the day the sun came out and so did the public. The Fire service were amazed with the dogs and just what they were capable of doing. £100 was raised in memory of Sam Haycock who sadly lost his life during the hot weather at Ulley Reservoir.
