17 Feb – Dog Poop
The Parish Council continue to receive lots of complaints regarding the increase in dog fouling on our Farndon pavements. Thank you to all the dog owners who do ‘pick up’ after their pets BUT can we please ask that ALL owners do so … Not only is it unpleasant it is a health hazard. As dog owners why not help each other out? If you see it on the pavement and you have a poop bag in your pocket, why not just pick it up. If not then you may all be tarred with the same brush.
