Poo bin in the churchyard
Thank you to every responsible dog-owner who takes care that their dog’s poo is safely bagged up and disposed of – this ensures that we are all able to enjoy our walks without fear of taking home something unwanted on our shoes.
However, many people are disposing of these bags in the poo bin just inside the church gate, a facility installed several years ago for use by visitors to the village.
The sign asking Grosmont residents to dispose of bags in their own domestic waste has fallen victim to the weather, meaning that people are now unaware that it was never intended as a facility for the village’s dog owners.
And here’s the thing … the bin is NOT the responsibility of the council, and the task of emptying it has fallen to one (non dog-owning) person to dispose of the bin’s contents.
So … please, could we respectfully ask that you take your own poo bags home and put them in your rubbish bins.
And, given the location of the bins outside the Town Hall … beside the pub’s benches … it would be great if these, too, could become poo-bag free zones.
