I HAVE been a regular walker around the Hampton Dene area, usually with my dog.

Regularly armed with a roll of poo bags I diligently collect my dog’s droppings and deposit them in one of the three appropriate bins dotted around the area.


It infuriates me, however, to observe the amount of dog poo on pavements, grass verges, lanes and open park areas.

What are your thoughts?

Clearly, some dog owners do not abide by the law. What amazes me more than this is that some dog owners take the trouble to collect their pets’ mess yet throw the bags and contents into the bushes!

Come on, people, let’s keep our beautiful city clean and healthy.
