Dog Fouling
Please clean up after your dog and remind any children out walking their dogs of the need to clean up too. There have been particular problems at the end of Dower Rise, on the grass and pavement adjoining Main Street. A bin is provided on Dower Rise to dispose of waste bags.

Failing to clean up after your dog can give rise to a £100 fixed penalty notice or a fine of up to £1000 ! if the case goes to court.
The problem, as with many anti-social laws, is ENFORCEMENT - THE WORD WOULD SOON GET ROUND IF SOMEONE WAS FINED

Damage at Christ Church
This is the scene near the church last week! Presumably youths had got into the compound next to the Church and thrown the contents around – . It has now been cleared up. The culprits must have climbed over the fence or wriggled in underneath.
The picture has been sent the to Deborah Parry (Swanland NHW) and requested that she reports it to our PCSO. No apparent damage was done to the watering equipment or other items in storage.

Duck Food Signs Two signs in the pond highlight the importance of feeding the ducks with grain. Bread pollutes the pond water and is less healthy for ducks. Healthier food (grain) is available from the Peppertree florist. The fish feed themselves.
