Dog Bins: Just a reminder that the dog bins in the village are there for the convenience of those walking their dogs. They do not have the capacity for those who are bringing dog poo from their own gardens – and there is some question as to whether this might be considered “fly-tipping”. However, it is now legal to put well-wrapped dog-poo into your own bin. Please do not leave bags on the paths.
