The Recreation and Environment Committee considered the vexing issue of dog fouling at its meeting on Monday 25 February.
It was agreed that the Council will pilot an early morning dog patrol at Bells Hill recreation ground, commencing 21 March. A rota of volunteers will be drawn up to patrol the rec. between 6.30 am and 7.30 am daily, to ensure that dog walkers are aware of the requirement to pick up and dispose of their dogs’ mess.
Volunteers will be issued with high visibility jackets and leaflets to hand to dog walkers who do not pick up. They will helpfully point out any fouling by dogs which their owner may not have noticed and point out the nearest dog waste bin.
If you are interested in helping the Parish Council tackle this problem, please contact the Clerk.
