It’s a problem that never goes away – dog poo!


Please can I ask that whoever is walking their dog in the Covey and taking the trouble to collect their pets poo in white poo bags, walk as far as the Poo Bin and dispose of them there, rather than throw them in the hedges along the Covey.

Those left buy the gate to the field were barely 10 feet away from the dog bin!.

The Parish Council provides 3 dog bins around the village having these emptied once a week cost this year £265. Probably a good idea to get value for money and use them as it’s paid out of the precept which is part of your council tax.

Also this year, 30 signs reminding dog owners of their responsibility to pick up after their pets have been put up around the village. There are signs at the Play Park and the landowner has also put signs along the footpath to the park and the allotments.

What more can be done to deter this disgusting practice? Name and Shame?
