Snow falling

5am – there is a covering of snow in the Village, with more on higher ground. Buxton Weather Watch report there is over an inch in Buxton. More snow is possible over the next few hours but sunshine is forecast by this afternoon with today’s maximum temperatures getting up to around 8°C, so it is not likely to last.

However, take care on the roads this morning and if you meet any difficulties do let other readers know through the comments below.

(No road problems or school closures are currently (5.30am) reported on the County Council Snow Information page of their website.)

 Peak District National Park Authority

Dog-walkers urged to scoop the poop on Peak District trails

People who exercise their dogs on trails in the Peak District National Park are being asked to dispose of their dog’s waste responsibly.With the onset of spring more people are using the trails to enjoy fresh air, take exercise and experience the landscape. However life on the trails is being marred by a litter problem.

The Monsal Trail, High Peak and Tissington Trails are some of the most popular traffic-free trails in the Peak District, enjoyed by walkers, cyclists and horse-riders, as well as dog-owners exercising their pets.

Emma Stone, who manages the national park trails, said: “Most people are considerate to others and use the trails responsibly. Sadly there are a few that spoil things for the majority by leaving litter, including dog waste.”

In some places dog waste litters the surface of the trail and in others people have bagged it and thrown it into bushes and trees.

Emma explained: “It is unpleasant and unhealthy for people to visit areas affected by dog-fouling which is why we are working with Derbyshire Dales District Council to address the issue on the trails. District councils have legal powers to enforce the duty of dog owners to clear up after their animals on public land.

“We want people to follow the countryside code which asks everyone to leave no trace of their visit. There wouldn’t be a problem if everyone took personal responsibility for keeping the national park litter-free, and that includes bagging dog waste and disposing of it in the appropriate bin, or taking it home.”

The national park launched a short animated film recently to help people understand how to act responsibly in the countryside, which includes keeping dogs on leads and removing their waste www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/learning-about/secondary-resources/do-this-video

For more advice read the Countryside Code at www.naturalengland.org.uk/countrysidecode

A timely gap in the clouds

Well, surprisingly there was a gap in the clouds just at the maximum of the eclipse.

Thank you Cheryl W for sending us this ‘Villager Jim’ photo.

(Added 12.30, have found out that ‘Villager Jim’ is an Eyam based photographer, so though looking pretty much as the eclipse did from Parwich, this photo is likely to have been taken from a little further north. To find out more about Villager Jim and his work click here to see his Facebook page. It is well worth checking out and if you are a Facebook member clicking his ‘like’ button.)
