CHILDREN’S prized pets were the stars of the show at a school’s chapel congregation.
Pupils from Solihull Junior School were invited to bring in their pets or favourite cuddly toys to be blessed at the school’s annual chapel pet service.
The children brought a wide range of animals along to the event, ranging from trusty pet dogs to a bearded dragon, a type of reptile.
Around 40 animals and their owners took part in the service, which was taken by the independent school’s chaplain Canon Andrew Hutchinson.
Keeping up with the animal theme, the hymns included All Things Bright and Beautiful, Rise and Shine and If I Were A Butterfly.
Headmaster David EJJ Lloyd attended the service with his dogs, Boris the Cockapoo and George the Labrador.
He said: “This event goes from strength to strength and it was lovely to see such a good turn-out again. The children and their pets all enjoyed themselves – as did Boris and George!”
