I am addressing this letter to the irresponsible dog owners who persist in letting their dogs foul on the grass outside the allotments in Ascot Crescent and then fail to clean it up. Not only is this totally anti-social but it is a health risk.

To make matters worse there is a dog waste bin not 50 yards away. Please do the right thing and clear up after your dog, the matter has been reported to the council who have promised to put up signs and the dog warden has said she will patrol the area. With the onset of summer and children out playing, we should not have to put up with the worry of what they are going to step in or worse fall in thanks to the thoughtlessness of a few.
