The Parish Council has received complaints about owners not picking up their dog’s faeces. Despite the majority of people kindly clearing up after their dogs, there is a very small minority who are either leaving the offending item where it has been deposited or placing it in a bag and leaving it hanging in the hedgerow. This is especially a problem in Wilderness Lane which makes it very unpleasant for residents and is a health hazard.
For those who leave the item on verges it can be a very unpleasant experience when the owner comes to cut back the vegetation.
Can owners please either place the dog’s faeces in the dog bins provided at the Village Hall and at the playing field or take it home with them.
Thank you for your support in solving this issue.
Hadlow Down Parish Council
From Councillor Michael Lunn
The Parish Council is looking forward to hear from our local PCSO Sue Choppin from Sussex Police regarding local crime issues. Meeting starts at 7pm tomorrow (6th. December) in the Committee Room of the Village Hall.
All parishioners welcome
According to the 1891 census there was once, and possibly still is, a house in Hadlow Down called ‘West Hadlow’. It could have had a name change in the last 100 years? Presumed to be west of ‘Hadlow’ (Now called Hadlow House) The Village Trust would appreciate any information or leads as to what happened to it.
Many thanks to anyone who can help.
