Responsible Dog Owners required
With the longer warmer days now upon us, dog walkers are now excercising their pets more. Please remember to clean up after your pet. It is an offence not to do so, and if you are observed by the Dog Warden you could receive a fixed penalty fine of £75.. Please clean up any mess your dog leaves behind and either take it home with you or deposit in one of the ten dog bins that can be found around village. If you are out in the fields then alternatively you could use the "stick and flick" method of disposal especially if near a hedgerow. Please don't bag, and then leave it hanging on a tree.
If you are aware of dog owners who frequently flout the law then why not take a photo and send it to the Dog Warden at firstname.lastname@example.org..
For more information about dogs and the law, please see East Northants Council Website

A number of these trees are understood to have been cleared as recently as 10 March, without the permission of the landowner.
