Dog Fouling in the Village

The Parish Council is supporting a new initiative to tackle dog fouling in the village, which involves spraying with a fluorescent paint dog mess which has not been picked up by dog owners. This will hopefully make it obvious just how bad the issue is in the village and also shame those, who do not pick up after their dogs, into doing so. If anyone in the village is concerned about dog fouling and would like to support this work, please contact the Clerk. adderburypc@hotmail.co. This has been trialled in other areas of the Country and has been very effective.

Update on Parish Council’s Increasing Biodiversity Project

About a year ago the Parish Council agreed to follow up the Chairman’s initiative in creating increased biodiversity areas around the village and encouraging residents to become involved.
Following a report on this project in the Contact a number of residents contacted the Clerk and Chairman to express support and interest in being involved. As a result, areas around the village have been left unmown during this summer to encourage grass and wild flowers to grow. These include Lake Walk Green, Tanners Lane areas of grass/verge and St Mary’s Road entrance.

Please be a responsible Dog Owner

As the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions continue to ease, there has been an increase in the number of people venturing out into the countryside for some social-distancing exercise.
Although good for the health, this is an the opportunity to encourage visitors to follow the Countryside Code for their own safety, and that of the wildlife and livestock they encounter.
There is a more sinister side to not following the rules, and visitors should keep to public footpaths and not walk over fields, always leave gates as they find them or let their dogs foul in the fields or leave poo bags on the ground or tied to fences.
