Kegworth Doesn't Do Dog Mess

It is very disappointing to report that our Lengthsman is having to pick up numerous deposits of dog mess on SideLey Park and on jitties. The dog mess on SideLey is not confined to the dog area alone but is being picked up in the main area of the park, one lot was even very close to a bin! The jitties are also suffering, with School Alley being one of the worst.

Please can I ask that everyone picks up their dogs' mess. If you see someone not picking up and do not want to approach them then please report to me the date, time and a description of the dog and owner in order that I can report the matter to NWLDC.

NWLDC have all sorts of methods that they use to catch owners in the act of not picking up and so armed with information, they can work efficiently to catch and fine people. You can report directly to NWL by using the below link

Of course I realise that the vast majority of dog owners pick up and that residents are appreciative of the improvements that are steadily being made in the village. It is therefore essential that the minority are not permitted to spoil the environment for everyone else.
