ATTENTION DOG OWNERS: I have had a complaint from a resident from the Newton Hill area – although I am sure this will also affect the Outwood area as well. The complaint is dog excrement – please, please clean up after your dogs. I am a dog owner, and we always clean up after our dog. It’s not fair or hygienic for children and adults to have to look at this, let alone step in it accidently. Also, if your dog is not wormed regularly, this could have a very adverse affect, causing blindness. Please stop giving responsible dog owners a bad name and pick up, I know it’s not a very nice thing to do, but I assure you, you soon get used to it. Thanks.
