Children in the Partney area had their pets blessed at a special service at St Nicholas’ Church, Partney, 10 years ago.

Organised by the Rev Richard Benson, the pet service saw youngsters from Partney CofE Aided Primary School perform a song and read prayers.

Residents from the community joined the children for the service and everyone was given the chance to walk around the church to meet the animals.
