Wereham News – December

DOG FOULING

With reference to dog fouling in The Row and Queens Close, irresponsible owners are failing to clear up after their pets.
Their dogs’ mess on our grass in The Row, also I’ve noticed up Queens Close as well in two or three places. I’m getting pretty fed up having to clear it up on our frontage, although the verge belongs to the council, who also fail to ever cut it, we have to do this, and we have to remove the dogs mess off our grass. I’ve even bought dog fouling signs to put up on our wall to try and stop the dogs fouling our grass. One other thing I would like to say is that up Queens Close there are young children who play on the grass and pavements, as you may know dog mess carries some really nasty things, and I would like to bring this to dog owners’ attention. Please clear up if your dog fouls, otherwise Wereham dog owners could face £1,000 fines.
