First a big thank you to dog owners who pick up after your dogs while walking. It makes a huge difference to our community in keeping it clean and safe.
The Parish Council has installed a number of dog poo bins around the area. These are located:
on Manor Road in front of the Village Hall;
at the junction of Fanny Lane and Brant Lane;
at the junction of Church Lane and Weedling Gate;
at the village end of the footpath from Church Lane to the A64 underpass;
on Stutton Road between the A64 and the Woodlands Estate.
If an additional bin or bins would be useful for you, please suggest the location(s) to the Parish Council.
Unfortunately there are still a few dog owners who are not taking advantage of the bins provided and so there are some areas where dog fouling is becoming an issue. Of particular concern is the area outside Stutton Village Hall, which is used by many small children attending the Stutton Playgroup. Other hot spots include Fanny Lane, Brant Lane and Green Lane. If you are a dog owner, please help to keep our verges and feet clean by using the bins provided.
A final plea. Obviously, if you are around the housing areas, please pick up any of your dog’s poo and put it one of the dog bins provided. But if you are further afield and pick up a poo, please do not leave it in a plastic bag beside the path or lane; if so wrapped it will not degrade and will remain for some considerable time as a horrible mess for its ultimate finder.
Thank you for your cooperation.
