Responsible Dog Owners

Published: 09 April 2021

THERE ARE GROWING COMPLAINTS OF PEOPLE NOT CLEARING UP AFTER THEIR PETS ESPECIALLY ON THE RECREATION GROUND. PLEASE BE RESPONSIBLE.

The Recreation field is a resource for the whole community, a place to sit, walk or play. It is not very nice when you have to spend your time avoiding dog poo.

A few inconsiderate members of the public are not clearing up after their dogs, mainly between the cricket square and Hill View Road and even in the children's play area including poo on the safer surfacing around the roundabout. Not very pleasant and totally un-necessary. 

It is not fair that other people are having to clear up the mess, yet this is precisely what our village litter picker has been doing on a regular basis so that on Thursday 24th she picked up 6 lots of poo, Friday 25th another 5 lots and Saturday 26th 6 more. 

Poo bags can be put in any of the ordinary bins on The Rec so there is no excuse not to "bag it and bin it".
