Dog Poo Poster Reducing the amount of Dog Mess in Higham

The Parish Council have started work to reduce the amount of Dog Mess left on the roads and pavements in our village.

Higham Primary School pupil Dieta Sharma has designed a poster which will be displayed in the Village. If you would like to put one in your window .. let us know (contact details below).

Volunteers will be out and about in the village mapping the location of Dog Mess on pavements and roads to help work out if we need to install additional Bins. If anyone would like to volunteer to help with this they can contact Sue Sparks on 07480 518493 or email sue3906@gmail.com.

All dog owners can help by:

--     Picking up the poo …… Supplies of Poo Bags are available from the Library and Lower Higham Garage.

--     Placing bags of poo in poo bins or ordinary litter bins - or taking them home.
