We ask all dog holders to be responsible and clean up after their pets.

Reminder– if you do not clean up after your dog, you could incur a £75.00 on the spot fine with a maximum penalty of £1000.00.

HEDGES AND TREES – It is an offence to let your hedges and trees encroach onto Public Footpaths and Rights of Way.  Offenders leave themselves open to prosecution, compensation for injury to pedestrians, and the cost of having trees and hedges cut back by the local authorities.  Parishioners are therefore kindly requested to check for any overhanging hedges and trees from their properties and arrange for them to be cut back.  


Car owners/drivers are requested to not park on the grass verges but to use their driveways whenever possible or on the road.
