Complaints of dog fouling on local paths have been made for several months now – Hacker’s Mead, the path to Barnes Meadow from Gore Lane, the Millennium Copse, and most worryingly of all, on the children’s playground where dogs shouldn’t even be – the whole playing field is a no-go area for dogs.

If you know the antisocial people allowing their pets to spoil the village for the rest of us, please inform the district council, using the details here: http://www.eastdevon.gov.uk/dog_bins.
