Corgis which have adorned the streets of Altrincham since the start of the month in celebration of The Queen's Platinum Jubilee are to be auctioned in days.

The corgis, which are Her Majesty's pet of preference, were decorated by artists, businesses and others and installed at a range of locations across the town.

Since June 1, residents have had the chance to seek them out with the help of a map from pick-up points such as Altrincham Interchange, Everyman Cinema, Inch Arts and The Unicorn.

But there are now less than two weeks until the corgis are to be auctioned at The Bowdon Rooms, in a change of venue due to the demand to attend the event.

Mandy White, the manager of Altrincham's Business Improvement District, said: "We've been overwhelmed by the popularity of the corgis and our thanks go to all the artists and businesses who have supported the project.

"We couldn't believe the immediate demand for places at the auction and we've had to move it to accommodate all of those wishing to attend.

"It has been fantastic to see so many people around the town enjoying the corgis.

"If you haven’t yet seen them, we’d encourage you to make a trip to Altrincham."

All proceeds from the auction are to support arts schemes in the town.

It is free to attend, although with a ticket, and a 'dogalogue' is online now.
