Story posted on

Last year’s winner, Cookie.

DO you think you have the cutest pet in Melksham? Then this could be your chance to show off your pet in Melksham News and win a fantastic prize!

Melksham News is once again looking for entries for its ‘Cutest Pet’ competition, celebrating National Pet Month. 

Last year’s competition was an overwhelming success with 112 Melksham pets competing for the title and hundreds of votes cast by animal-loving readers. Melksham’s reigning ‘Cutest Pet’ is Cookie, a three-year-old Cavalier King Charles spaniel dog, owned by Chris and April Shuttleworth and their three sons, Oliver, Dexter and Morgan.

Animals of all shapes and sizes are eligible to enter; regardless of whether they have four-legs, two-legs or none. The competition is open to any pet who lives in our newspaper distribution area.  Please email a clear photo of your pet only, (one photo per pet) to: news@melksham news.co.uk 

All entries must include the name of your pet, and the owner’s name, address and contact details and must be emailed to our office by 5.00pm on Thursday 4th April.

Entries will be shortlisted and the finalists’ photographs will be printed in the next issue of Melksham News. Readers will then be asked to vote on which pet deserves to be crowned the ‘Cutest Pet.’ 

Petstown in Melksham has kindly donated a winner’s prize of Petstown gift vouchers to the winning owner.

A story and photograph of the winning pet and its owner will also be featured in the following edition of Melksham News.

So if you think your dog is as cute as Cookie, your cat is the one that got the cream or that your goldfish can swim its way into the hearts of our readers, send us a photo to news@melkshamnews.co.uk.
