Don’t let your dog worry sheep

It is that time of year when ewes with lambs will soon be in the fields within the vicinity of Butchers Hill / Newleaze (behind Green line tanks).   

Whilst there is a footpath, this is across privately owned land and does not permit the exercising of dogs around the field. 

Please remember it is a criminal offense to allow your dog to worry livestock.  Dogs should be on a lead and kept under control at all times when crossing this land and any dog mess  cleared up to prevent illness. 

Likewise. walkers are reminded to keep to the designated footpath network.

Thank you.
