Cause for Concern

A number of local people have become very concerned at the amount of “dog dirt” appearing on our village streets. This dog dirt can be dangerous to children walking the streets to school and even more so to childminders pushing buggies along the streets. Dog owners should be more responsible. Such “dirt” also makes little of the efforts of our hard working tidy towns committee who over the last 3 years have managed to raise our tidy towns mark each year.
