Episode 6 - The Yard Sunday Social Special
Ian and Stobbie are currently out of the office and will get back to you when they're back in - have some audio from their visit to The Yard Sunday Social's Christmas Barket in the meantime. This doggy-centric event was a collaboration between The Yard and Dog Friendly Perthshire which had two rooms filled with stalls, a social seating area, food stalls and lots of our four-legged friends (some of which make a cameo during the recording!)  We'll be back on January 12th with our regular format - until then, have a great new year and we'll see you in 2020!
