Regarding the problem of dog owners not picking up their dogs’ poo in the park.

We in the Robin Hoods Walk/Sheriff Way/Oak Crescent area have a different but equally annoying problem. Some dog walkers let their dogs defecate in the middle of the footpaths and although most pick it up a trace is always left, resulting in numerous poo marks and presumably germs on footpaths. When I had a dog the gutter was the place for that.

But the best is a couple new to the area who deliberately let their little dog, on an expanding lead, poo on our front lawns and flower beds, although they do trespass on our properties to pick it up.
