Please clean up after your dog!

Please clean up after your dog!

We have had quite a few complaints lately from residents regarding dog waste on pavements around the village.

It is an offence to not pick up after your dog, and owners can also be fined if they cannot produce a means to collect the waste when asked by an officer.
