As part of the Parish Council’s Bad Weather provision, sandbags are provided free-of-charge to residents in case of need. They are, however, supplied empty and will require filling by the user before use. Sand is available from local retailers in Axminster. Please contact Cllr. Bob Speed on 01297 33330 or the Clerk (number above) if you anticipate a requirement in the near future.

Please plan ahead. It may not be possible to respond to requests immediately and therefore, residents should ensure that they hold sufficient bags in case of emergency.

Thank you.

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.
