A reminder to all dog owners in the area to be vigilant when exercising your pet and to pick up after them as this is your legal duty! Whilst most dog owners are caring, responsible individuals, there are still some people who do not clean up after their pets.
In recent weeks there has been a noticable increase in dog fouling, which is both an eyesore and a health hazard. There are plenty of dog bins around the village, but if you cannot find one then please double wrap the bag and place into a normal bin.
Anyone who fails to clean up after their dog can be issued with a fixed penalty notice. If this goes to court this could cost the person in charge of the dog up to £1000.
Thank you for your co-operation
