The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire

Concern of the Week - Return of The Pink Spray!

Home » News » Return of The Pink Spray!

Dog poo is back on the increase throughout the village.

Expect to see the 'Return of The Pink Spray', marking areas where dog poo has not been removed in and around our community. This is to alert individuals to the increased incidence of dog poo.

Without doubt this is hugely disappointing since our most recent survey found little evidence of dog poo in the village.

There is really no excuse for failing to remove dog poo — we all know that most dog owners and dog walkers are responsible individuals. That said, the neglect of a few dog owners, creates very unsatisfactory outcomes for the majority of our residents.

We are appalled to report that dog poo has also been found throughout our beautiful Churchyard, one such deposit being left on an individual grave! There had been an earlier incident of quite dreadful dog mess on a grave, relatives having had to clean up the mess. This is totally unacceptable.

Free poo bags are available and sufficient bins are located throughout our village.

We encourage everyone to use the bags and bins and to join the Green Dog Walkers Scheme on which we have reported previously.
