More Poo

The good Mrs Raistrick posted the following comment on another part of this Blog. I have taken the liberty of promoting it to a more prominent position in the earnest hope that whoever is responsible can make a resolution to improve their community obligations in the coming 2019.

“A plea to the village, there is an increase in dog poo around the village, don’t know why., however totally unacceptable. Please pick it up!

My husband empties the Village dog bin so I do not expect to walk outside my gate to be faced with a parcel of someone else’s dogs leftovers.

I will find out who they are and woe betide the wrath of my tongue and I will report to the environmental agency having picked it up and deposited outside your door!

Graham has brought to our attention, on more than one occasion, the lack of communication around the village.

He has sent me the following photo as an example. If you do not walk past the Village Hall you would have no idea that there is to be a special event on New Years Day.

He also brought to my attention that despite the Village Hall having its own website, and indeed its own Facebook Page, the event isn’t advertised on either.
