General Administrative Update

Litter

We wish to thank publicly, the small but intrepid group of volunteers who, of their own volition, continually collect and remove the litter from the verges, roads and other areas around the village. Some of these residents combine their litter picking with the routine of their daily exercise. One lady in particular manages to do so despite having to use a walking aid. We are very grateful and appreciative of their continued selfless dedication.

You may see the bags containing this litter placed adjacent to some of the waste bins around the village, this is perfectly OK and is part of an arrangement with CBC to collect the litter.  Anyone who wishes to join the litter pickers is welcome to do so, the parish council can provide you with the equipment for you to participate.


Dog Fouling

Dog fouling is a perennial problem that affects most villages in the county.  We have many reports of dog faeces around the area of the football pitch adjacent to the village hall, and on the footpath at the entrance to Church Piece, on the short grass, in clear view, and less than 2 metres from the recently installed additional dog waste bin. This is particularly disappointing as we have provided these extra bins to make it easy and convenient for dog owners to dispose of dog faeces safely, for the benefit of everyone.

The refusal of some owners to clean up after their dog and to make full use of the waste bins provided, indicates that the behaviour is determined by the attitude of the owner and not by any prevailing environmental or other conditions.

So, we ask once again that all dog owners act responsibly, consider other residents, and especially children, and clean up after their dog wherever that might be in the village, and dispose of the dog faeces in the bins provided for that purpose.
