On 8 April, the Parish Council received a complaint from a local resident expressing concern at the increased amount of dog poo in the village over recent weeks. It is claimed that the problem is particularly bad between Southfield Drive and Halsteads Farm. We have been asked to remind residents that poo bins are available at the bottom of Bowland Gate Lane and also near the flag pole at the Village Hall. Please could all dog walkers pick up their dog's poo and use the bins available. (Thank you to all those dog walkers who continue to act responsibly).
