Dogs are now welcome on Stanhoe playing field, as long as their owners keep them under control and clean up after them.
The announcement from the MEHM Trust comes with the arrival of a new dog waste bin near the Village Hall & Reading Room, on the boundary of the rough field and the playing field.
“We are delighted to say that dogs are now officially allowed to be exercised on the playing field,” said Trust chairman Laura Pocock.
“The playing field was purchased for the village by the MEHM Trust so please be responsible and pick up after your four-legged friends. You can dispose of dog waste in the new bin provided by the Parish Council near the Village Hall & Reading Room on your field.”
“We would also ask you to keep dogs on leads around the play equipment. We hope you enjoy using this valuable village amenity.”
