Clean up dog mess after you

AS a long term resident of Preston Grange, I would like to appeal to all those people who walk their dogs through the estate and surrounding area to actually clean up after them.

Not only is it the law to pick your dog’s poo up, it’s common courtesy and shows respect for your community.

I am the owner of two dogs and have noticed an increase in the amount of dirt being left.

As every responsible owner will agree, picking up is a must. No matter where or when it occurs (day or night), there is no excuse. You are giving the responsible owners among us a bad name.

And when you have cleaned up, pop your bag in a bin or take it home – throwing it into a corner or someone’s garden is not acceptable.
