There have been reports of an increase in dog fouling in the village. Not only does this create an unhealthy and unclean environment, it is also an offence and dog owners can be fined if they do not clean up after their dogs. We would like to keep our roads and footpaths clean and pleasant to walk on, so if you see anyone’s dog making a mess, please remind their owners to clean it up. Although there are no dog waste bins in the village, there are normal bins and these are emptied regularly.
