Could I remind villagers to stick to the footpaths when walking through the fields. There are a great many people using the footpaths at the moment as you can imagine, but many of them are wandering off the footpaths across fields and even into fields of crops which have no footpaths at all. Villagers should always make sure that they are certain that they know where the footpath runs before starting out.
As there is a lot of young stock in the fields at the moment, we would be grateful if people could also keep their dogs on leads and fully under control. If the dogs are on leads it also makes it much easier to pick up their poo which, as you may be aware, can carry a parasite which can cause abortions in cattle.
