Oh Dear, here we go again! Someone is allowing their dog or dogs to ‘exercise’ on the allotment field. Either people are walking their dogs in there, or are they free ranging and escaping in there? Or , well there are many reasons, but the problem is what the animals leave behind!!. People grow their food (obviously) and there are allotment holders that take their young children with them to enjoy the growing experience and could do without the added complications of dog poo. Its a health hazard, and of course not pleasant if stepped in and especially distressing for these young families. Access is restricted to the allotment holders and its no place to allow dogs to mess. Please respect our allotment holders and keep dogs out of this area.
Now the traffic flow through our village has been under scrutiny for many years and now there are moves afoot to try to reduce either the traffic or the speed at which most vehicles thunder through our main street. Local resident Dinah Ashton is heading up a group of folk who wish to try and do something about this menace. If you would like to put forward ideas or express an opinion, please contact Dinah by email or message her on the village website/facebook page.
