Health & Social Care


This campaign was started in February 2014. The Dog Warden has visited the village to meet residents and the school too as the children had concerns. Extra notices have been placed around the village. Three new additional bins have been placed near the school common; near the Millersfield bungalows on the approach to Fallowfield and outside Garden House Farm, all provided by the Parish Council. A further 4 bins are to be placed at the Old Hexham Road, across from the Post Office at the bus stop, on Howford Lane near the junction of A6079 and further down towards the entrance to the bridleways.

 Remember all bins can be used for disposing of dog poo – not just the special red ones! Free Poo bags continue to be available at the Post Office. Just ask Paul.

There have been mixed views about whether there has been improvement or not. If there is illegal dog fouling on pavements and footpaths/bridleways, then please report it to 0845 600 6400. The Dog Warden will revisit the village and address recurrent dog fouling incidents.
