Isn’t Life Difficult Enough For Us All Right Now?


Last week there was a report of several bags of dog poo being left on an allotment. Also dog owner still not picking up after their pets on the footpath. See below what to do if you see this happening.

It is an offence in South Norfolk for a person in control of a dog not to clear up the dog mess immediately on any land that is open to the air and to which the public is entitled or permitted to have access (with or without payment).

Offenders can be issued with a fixed penalty notice of £80, reduced to £60 if paid within 10 days, or if taken to court, a fine up to £1,000.

If you see someone allowing their dog to foul and not clear it up, please contact SNDC with the owner’s details and where it happened. SNDC will investigate and clean it up. You can do this online using the link to the form here

Today we are made aware of a break-in at Surlingham Garage.

At 3.44 a.m. on 4th January at least 1.5 tons of car batteries were stolen.

Thieves arrived in a plain white transit van and parked in the driveway of 13 South View. They gained access to the workshop and passed the batteries over the fence into the garden of 13 South View, loaded them into their van and drove off. Fortunately, there is cctv footage.

If you have any information regarding this incident, contact the police telephone 101 or call into Poringland Police Station. If you wish to remain anonymous contact Crime stoppers online here

Residents are advised to keep your eyes open and sheds and outhouses secured.
