It has been brought to our attention that there has recently been lot of dog mess around the grounds of Buttington Trewern CP school and the Community Centre. This is a major health issue, especially to the children who attend the school and are regularly playing in that area.
Whilst we realise most dog owners are caring, responsible individuals, there are still some people who do not clean up after their pets. Anyone who fails to clear up after their dog can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of up to £100. If the case goes to court this could cost the owner or person in charge of the animal up to £1,000. The law states that being unaware a dog has fouled or not having a suitable bag is not a reasonable excuse.
We do have CCTV at the school and we are also increasing the number of cameras in that vicinity, as well as increasing the monitoring of the CCTV. If anyone is caught not cleaning up after their dog, we will report you and we ask that if you do see anyone offending, please report it at the following link…
PLEASE CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOG!
Repair Cafe Wales
Do you have any repair skills? Would you be willing to volunteer your time to help your Community?
Trewern Community Council are thinking of setting up a Repair Café, which would take place locally every month, to help local residents fix/repair items, through skills such as, woodwork, sewing etc. If this was to go ahead, we would need volunteers with the skills needed to fix items.
Repair cafés are started by residents, with the support of Repair Café Wales, and run by the local community. At each repair café event, somewhere between 20 and 50 members of the public bring their damaged or broken household items for repair/advice. Typical items include electrical goods, technology, ornaments, clothes, bicycles for basic maintenance & guidance, jewellery and more! The repair café volunteers then attempt to repair the items. The visitors are encouraged to join in and learn how their item is being fixed so that they can attempt similar repairs in the future.
Please get in touch with us if this is something you would be interested in.
