Dog Fouling Poly Bags

Dog fouling in the Playing Field

Several years ago we installed a dispenser for poly bags to use for clearing up dogs’ mess in the Village Playing Field.  The idea was to help dog-walkers who found they had come out without a bag of their own.  In recent weeks bags have been disappearing at the rate of hundreds per week because people have been taking them in quantity for use elsewhere, sometimes leaving the dispenser empty.  This is not fair on the Council Tax payers of this village who are the ones who pay for these bags.

Do use the bags sensibly when you need them in the field, put filled bags in the bin provided in the field (not on hedges or tree branches), and please don’t take handfuls of bags – just one at a time.
