We have teamed up with Taylors Corn Stores, which has eight shops across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, including in Ripley and South Wingfield.

Our winner will get a £100 gift voucher to spend in Taylors Corn Stores outlets.

Your picture of your pet could be a cute and cuddly one or it might be them being a bit mischievous – whatever you think is the best picture.

Diana Griffin, managing director at Taylors, said: “We are pleased to be sponsoring this competition and are looking forward to seeing the entries in the Ripley & Heanor News.”

Julie Crouch, editor of the News, said: “The £100 prize, thanks to our sponsors Taylors Corn Stores, is great and sure to buy your pet some top treats.”
