Last weekend and this week have seen some reasonable weather which encourages people to go out walking. This is great and a good free way of keeping fit. But please do remember when out in the fields please stick to the footpaths and not across the middle of the farmers fields. Also if you have a dog please keep it on a lead as it is now getting close to lambing season and many ewes are in lamb, some may have already lambed early. If you open a gate make sure it is closed behind you as there have been a few incidents of sheep getting out and this can cause a hazard on the roads and to the animals. If these few rules are remembered everyone stays happy.
