Dog Poo Around Shalford

Local FaceBook postings in October 

1. Apologies for the negative post but there is someone with a dog who uses dark green poo bags who keeps leaving the bags on the ground. The latest by the gate in the church yard. I really wish they would take them home or put them in the bins provided, if it’s you or you know who it might be please try a bit harder to look after our village

2. I’d be grateful if Dog poo owners didn’t leave their dog poo on the path up to where they use their remote airplanes . Also Dog poo on pavements by brick house. ! Please clear up your dog poo. Thanks x

3. I have picked two of them up recently. This is the sort of thing gets us all a bad namenewspicture11
