Dog mess confusion

Posted on March 30 2019 at 3:19:25

Blackwell residents were left confused when dog mess left on village pavements was highlighted with brightly-coloured “chalk spray” in a parish council initiative.

Councillor Anna Boehm told colleagues that some people thought they were being unjustly accused of not picking up their pet’s waste, but once villagers realised what it was for, they were generally supportive.

“It helps people to avoid stepping in the mess, and it has raised awareness – there has not been so much poo since,” said Coun Boehm.
