At the recent Parish Council meeting a resident raised the matter of dog fouling and dogs running free without being properly supervised by their owners.

The problem of dog fouling is a persistent one but recently seems to have got worse.

We have put notices up on the Green and the Parish Noticeboard.

If you do see an incident when dog litter is not picked up, we suggest that that the owner is politely asked to pick it up saying that it is a problem for our children and other residents. If the owners will not help or if confronting them is too much, then please let the Parish Clerk know the name and address of the owner and the Parish Council will advise the Harrogate Council Dog Warden.
