MORE than 30 corgis are set to assemble at Dillington House as part of a project organised by a Chard student.

Seth Dellow, a pupil at the Richard Huish College, has organised the day featuring a corgi rally, games and filming on Sunday, November 5.

Seth has teamed up with the West of England Corgi Association for the event which is set to start at 11am and is free for members of the public to attend.

He said: “I am creating a documentary for my final qualification in media at colleg, and it is all about corgi dogs.

“The corgi breed is in decline and I have organised a big event with more than 30 of these dogs to assemble at Dillington House.

“There are a limited amount in the UK, with various reasons for this in which I shall talk about in the documentary.”

A spokesman for the WECA said: “At this time of the year we would normally have long since finished our season of outdoor activities in the West Country, most notably this summer with our appearance at the Buckham Fair in August.

“However, we have since been approached by Seth and he has asked if we could help him with a media project leading to a future academic qualification.

“Seth would like to make a film documentary about Welsh Pembroke corgis.

“And so we have selected an outdoor venue where we can assemble about 30 Welsh Pembroke corgis and their owners on a grassed area about the size of a netball court and organise games, races and agility with two gazebos to protect us from the elements.”
