It is quite noticeable that there are many dog owners in the village who are not picking up after their dog. Whilst other dog owners may tolerate this there are many in the village who do not own a dog and have less sympathy for the unhealthy mess that is created. Smaller children in particular are at risk from the diseases that can be spread by contact. Please can you pick up after your dog, not once in a while, but always. It will be greatly appreciated and all the village will benefit.
