Your town needs your help to tackle a foul problem

Dog poo posterThe amount of dog mess being left on pavements is on the increase as the nights are drawing in. Action is needed now to tackle the problem.  

Volunteers are being sought to work together on a campaign to rid Shipston of this foul and unnecessary issue. 

Mayor, Dan Scobie, said: “As a dog owner myself, I know how easy it is to clean up after your pet – there are no excuses.”

The council is keen to get your input on how best to encourage people to pick up after their pet. Ideas already under discussion include volunteer dog wardens, creative publicity campaigns and naming and shaming repeat offenders. The town council is also looking into the possibility of empowering volunteers with issuing on the spot fines. 

If you’ve had enough of watching where you walk, please contact the Town Clerk to find out how you can help be part of the solution.

For more information, please email clerk@shipstononline.org or call 01608 662180.
