Farmers in the village have at various times in the past, raised concerns about walkers and dog walkers passing through Farmland on the designated footpaths/rights of way.
The Parish Council has been asked to remind residents and dog walkers to respect the limits of the various footpaths which pass through Farmland, to keep their dogs under control, particularly in fields of livestock, and to ensure that dog mess, which can be a hazard to livestock, is cleared up in the same way as it is in the village.
It is very shortly lambing time and all residents and dog walkers are asked to be aware of their responsibilities when walking in the countryside.
The landowner of the ‘old railway track’ has informed the Council that the current Agreement allowing public access to the track is to be terminated. As the current Agreement expires on 31 January 2018, access will not be permitted after that date. Residents are asked to note this change to access.
