TAILS have been wagging in Weare after a line dancing dog club, which thought it might have to close, has finally found a new home.Waggy Tails, which was originally based in Banwell, was forced to find a new home after the village's community centre was earmarked to become a children's centre.Since then members of the group have been searching to find somewhere to continue practising.Waggy Tails organiser Alison Garforth said: "We tried desperately to find somewhere and for a while we were worried we would have to split up."Luckily a new home for Waggy Tails has been found at Badgworth Barns in Weare and members of the group have been working hard to get their new HQ up and running. The group had just two weeks to turn the run-down derelict barn into a doggy-friendly new home. It opened last Friday. Alison said: "We were thrilled to find a new home, but the barn was completely empty and a bit of a mess. We all pulled together and transformed the building within two weeks by decorating the walls with paw prints and bright colours."The new centre houses a doggy creche, a library of books and new training equipment. Alison describes the new centre as 'a support network for dog owners'.She said: "I would like to thank everyone who has volunteered to make the project come alive. Everyone has been so kind and generous.
