It seems not all our residents would agree!

The Parish Council is concerned at the number of recent complaints from villagers about dog waste being left on footpaths and adjacent grass verges. In addition, plastic bags containing dog waste are frequently being left hanging on hedges, or on trees, or are being thrown over hedges and fences into fields.

The Parish Council knows that the majority of dog owners are responsible villagers, who care for their canine companions and do their best to respect the environment and the wellbeing of their fellow residents.

The few that would appear less concerned  are reminded to bear in mind that they are spoiling the enjoyment of the footpaths and greenspaces in our village for residents and other dog owners alike.  They are requested to act responsibly, and to collect their dog’s waste and dispose of it in the bins provided, or in their own waste bins.
