Calling All Dog Owners


Over the winter months the number of used poo bags being discarded inappropriately (in hedgerows and trees, on verges, and throughout our woodlands) has increased dramatically.  A member the Woodlands Group recently removed over 200 from the badgers’ sett in Nine Horse Wood.  This is not acceptable.   If you are a dog owner, you are responsible for clearing up after your pet and putting the bagged poo into one of the many bins provided.  Most of us do this, but there is a small (but very significant) minority who don’t.  If you are one of those, your behaviour is giving all dog owners a bad name and is leading to unsightly contamination throughout the village.  Thankyou to all those who behave responsibly and who also find this disgusting habit intolerable.
