Re­minder to clean up mess

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

WITH dark nights fully upon us, Broughton Ast­ley Par­ish coun­cil is re­mind­ing res­i­dents to clean up the mess of their dogs to avoid a hefty £1,000 fine.

The par­ish coun­cil has re­ceived an in­crease in com­plaints from res­i­dents re­gard­ing dog mess around the vil­lage.

They want to re­mind res­i­dents that dog own­er­ship is a per­sonal choice and to al­low a dog to foul in a pub­lic place and nto clear it up is anti-so­cial and il­le­gal.

Fail­ing to pick up your dog’s mess can re­sult in a fine of up to £1,000.

The Par­ish coun­cil pro­vide nu­mer­ous dog waste bins around the vil­lage and free dog waste bags are pro­vided for Broughton Ast­ley res­i­dents which are avail­able from the Par­ish of­fice.
