DOG FOULING AND USE OF POOP BAGS

The Community Council would like to remind dog owners that "poop" bags are available free of charge from the village shop.
Please be considerate to other members of the community and clean up after your dogs misdeeds.

The use of "poop" bags has been successful in helping to keep the village clean but some people are still being inconsiderate in having very kindly bagged their dogs poop they have then just hung the bag in a nearby bush or tree. Being a generous soul I would like to think that they were put there with the intention of collecting them on the return journey of their walk rather than a deliberate act. Please dispose of "poop" bags in a hygienic and environmentaly friendly way.

PUBLIC INVITED TO LEARN MORE ABOUT NEW
PROPOSALS FOR STRANOCH WIND FARM

Local residents are being given the opportunity to find out more about new plans for a wind farm in Dumfries and Galloway.

EDFy was awarded planning consent for a 24 turbine wind farm on the site in 2016, but is now reviewing the project in order to make the wind farm more efficient.

Following a review of the project the company has considered various options for the site and is now proposing a reduction in the number of turbines and incorporating a range of turbine heights from 140 metres to 175 metres to blade tip.

To bring residents and local stakeholders up to date with the proposal, drop-in exhibition events will be held on:

Saturday 28th April at Barrhill Primary School (10.00am – 1.00pm).

Members of the wind farm development team will be present at both events to answer questions on the plans. The information provided will include visual simulations to help residents understand what the wind farm will look like from various locations.

The use of "poop" bags has been successful in helping to keep the village clean but some people are still being inconsiderate in having very kindly bagged their dogs poop they have then just hung the bag in a nearby bush or tree. Being a generous soul I would like to think that they were put there with the intention of collecting them on the return journey of their walk rather than a deliberate act. Please dispose of "poop" bags in a hygienic and environmentaly friendly way.

DOG FOULING AND USE OF POOP BAGS

The Community Council would like to remind dog owners that "poop" bags are available free of charge from the village shop.
Please be considerate to other members of the community and clean up after your dogs misdeeds.

The use of "poop" bags has been successful in helping to keep the village clean but some people are still being inconsiderate in having very kindly bagged their dogs poop they have then just hung the bag in a nearby bush or tree. Being a generous soul I would like to think that they were put there with the intention of collecting them on the return journey of their walk rather than a deliberate act. Please dispose of "poop" bags in a hygienic and environmentaly friendly way.
