The Countryside Code

The Countryside Code

The weather is picking up and we have the lovely Spring sunshine on its way. With more people out and about this is just a polite reminder to ask members of the public to keep to public footpaths and keep their dogs on the lead and under control, with it being lambing season it is important that dogs are not exercising over fields.
