The group provide respite care for people with dementia in order for their carers and families to enjoy a well needed break.
A spokesman for HdCF said: “The day started with a splash of rain to freshen up the Green before the walk started.
“Several dogs walked with their owners, some walkers in fancy dress and all received a certificate at the end of the walk.
