Oh no here we go again!! Dogs have been seen worrying sheep in the little field by the river. Although the field has a public footpath, the use of this land is agricultural, so please look before you let your dog off his lead to make sure that there are no farm animals present. Sheep worrying is an offence and you can be taken to court for allowing your dogs to behave in this way, and of course, they can inflict horrific injuries to sheep and lambs in particular. Please, please take extra care when walking in the countryside at this time of year.
There will be several events at the Fishermans in the coming weeks; Easter Day lunch, booking advised, Quiz nights on the third Thursday of each month. Libby has been organising several competitions to help the refugees from Ukraine, with food hampers as prizes, there will be more during April. The pub is also acting as a drop-off point for donations that are destined for Eastern Europe by the Kingsbridge group organised by Andrew Dyas, so bring your donations with pride, you can phone the pub on 55o285 for further details.
