EDDC  ‘Pick It Up’  campaign

 click here for larger poster

The  EDDC’s ‘Pick It Up’ campaign is a reminder about the responsibility for cleaning up dog fouling, that it is ultimately down to the owner or handler of the dog.


Witnesses: Another helpful matter is for any witnesses who see dog fouling and the owners not picking up to provide us with the following:




Full description of the dog

Male or Female owner

Exact Location of fouling


If there is a regular pattern for the dog walker, for example they walk their dog at around 08:30hrs each day, all this information will be useful so that we can target these people at specific times and create a window of opportunity to catch them.


If you wish to report any incidents please contact our Customer Service Centre on 01395 571517 and a call can be logged.  This will be referred to the Environmental Health Dept and dealt with by an officer.

From: All Saints Parish Council   To:  All parishioners

It has been widely reported that Devon County Council will need to make yet further Budget cuts of around £110,000,000 to services over the next few years.  A very large proportion of this sum will be borne by the Highways Department.

In consequence, the Parish Council expects that, besides a great reduction in road maintenance, there will be a loss, at the very least, of many hours of the lengths-mans’ allocated time.

The Parish Council is also endeavouring to ‘balance the budget’ without a big increase to the Precept. Therefore, we request farmers and others in this Parish whose land runs along any public highway to make sure please that all ditches and drains are kept clear, especially after hedge-trimming and other works.

Please help to keep our Parish beautiful and most importantly safe.
