A MOO-VELLOUS time was had by all at the Cowplain Cow Trail.

The trail took place in Queen’s Inclosure woods, off Park Lane, yesterday.

The theme this year was ‘eco cows.’

Materials used by local businesses, families, community groups and schools to create their perfect cow to display included tin cans, cardboard, milk cartons, newspaper, grass, sticks and leaves for natural and recyclable animals.

But as well as going crazy about cows, there was a more serious aspect to the annual event.

A short sponsored walk was held for toddlers to raise money for Phoebe’s fight.

Phoebe’s Fight is in aid of youngster Phoebe Craig from Waterlooville who was diagnosed with leukaemia in October 2012.

She underwent extensive hospital treatment but sadly it was confirmed in November that the cancer had returned.

Phoebe’s Fight is designed to highlight the tot’s plight.

It is also helping to raise funds to support Phoebe and her family in making their daily battle a little more bearable.

The annual trail was organised by Caterpillar Crafts.

Cow artwork has also been displayed at shops in the area as part of the Cow Trail project.
