The Parish Council has received many complaints about the increase in dog mess not being picked up. This is not only anti social but is also a health risk. The Council is also aware of the trend for dog walkers to bag up the mess, but rather than taking it home or placing in a dog bin, hanging it in trees or shrubs. Again this is unacceptable and unsightly. Offenders can currently be fined up to £1000 if they are observed by a CBC Zone Warden of not picking up their dog's mess. The Council urges all dog owners to be responsible and pick up after their dog and place the bag in one of the many bins provide around the villages, or take it home for disposal. If residents become aware of dog owners not picking up after their dog then please contact the CBC Zone Warden on 01206 282581
The Parish Council was pleased to arrange for the purchase of a defibrillator to be sited on the outside wall of the Lion Corner Community Shop. The defibrillator is available for public use at all times. The defibrillator is contained in a locked cabinet and to gain access, you need to ring 999 for an ambulance in the normal way and if thought necessary, the operator will provide you with the code to access the defibrillator until help arrives. During normal opening hours, the staff in the shop will be able to assist you.
