All Saints Village Summer Show 2020
You will not be surprised to learn that the Committee has decided to cancel this year’s Summer Show. We have considered alternative formats which, in view of this fast escalating pandemic, have not proved possible. We are therefore confident that our decision is both reasoned and responsible.
On a positive note, we will use the 2020 Schedule next year, so you will not have wasted any work which you may already have done.
With best wishes and stay safe.

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.
