Take it home!

I live near Pound, Horrabridge, not far from the old station.

Recently there has been a lot of dog's mess left in the woods.

Trouble is that it is put in blue plastic bags and suspended from the trees.

How stupid!  There are also lots of beer cans left in the woods which could harm wildlife apart from looking very unsightly.  My husband regularly comes back from a walk with a bag full of empty cans.

Surely people who go for walks in such a beautiful area should preserve

it for others and take their litter home.

    Re: dog's mess in the woods. I couldn't agree more, strawberry. The recent habit of putting dog mess into blue plastic bags and leaving it suspended from trees is quite deplorable. It's a pointless exercise, unhygenic and extremely unsightly. Take the mess home and dispose of it correctly. The same with the beer cans. Let's keep our countryside clean and tidy. It should be a place that we - and our future generations - can all enjoy.
