A recent football match was halted by the referee until dog mess was removed from the pitch.
The Longmead Sports complex is proving a great success particularly for dog lovers, but their presence is proving a nuisance to sports people and a potential heath risk. The health risk to children and adults of coming into contact with dog faeces is well known and the Parish Council are asking dog walkers not to allow their dogs to roam free over the complex and use it as a dog loo. Signs are being erected to let dog walkers know.
The Council has provided bins for the dog waste, which are emptied regularly by Mid Devon District Council at some cost to the Parish. Please use them.
