Dog Mess in the Village

dogA resident has recently raised the issue of excessive amounts of dog mess left on the pavements. This state of affairs is totally unacceptable. No dog owner is unaware of the need to carry a bag to pick up after their dog.

The Parish Council have been instrumental in placing many dog bins around the village which are regularly emptied by Rushcliffe Borough Council.

On the Recreation Ground and the Railway Walk, dog owners are reminded that they should clear up their dog’s mess. It is also unacceptable to collect the mess into a polythene bag and then simply throw it into the bushes. This habit is worse than non-collection as the contents cannot decompose inside a plastic bag!! Why would anyone do such a thing?

Please, all dog owners, carry a bag and pick up and bin it!!
