New Year Resolution for All Dog Owners – pick up your poo!
For the third time in the past week I have picked up and binned other dogs’ faeces on the large cricket pitch when depositing my own dogs’ waste.  I do this on behalf of all other good dog owners who would hate to see another place that dogs are banned from entering just because some people can’t be bothered. Maybe a bin can be placed on the field to make it more enticing to do the right thing?
Dogs are meant to be man’s best friend, but they are regulated more than any other pet in the country! We’ve already been told we can’t use the smaller playing field because it’s for children only, (despite seeing around seven kids play on there in two years.) I’d love it if dogs had a designated play area so we can all be responsible for looking after said area. Instead, I fear, I’ll see a notice on this blog to say dogs are no longer allowed on the cricket pitch either simply because of a handful of people. We are not perfect dog owners ourselves, our dogs are not perfect, but one thing we do do is make sure we pick up their do do’s!
So please, learn to steel your stomachs for this unpleasant task and think of the greater good.

With the Parish Council meeting on Wednesday discussing feedback received and possible next steps I’m a little concerned that many people may have missed the information posted here on the blog as these posts have now disappeared down the page.

I think it’s worth pointing to the information concerning the proposal and also issues and concerns raised in comments on the blog.

The Council website pages has a comprehensive set of information concerning the plans which can be found here

A number of people have expressed concerns to us and have quoted the Mast Sanity site as a good starting point for researching possible negative consequences of a mast so close to the village. Their information on masts can be found here

Mast Sanity and other research expresses concerns regarding health issues for residents within 400m of a mast. Others such as the Government and the NHS say  there are no health issues.

just for interest, here’s the plan of Parwich with 100metre distances from the proposed mast location that was posted previously in a comment.


In posting this I wish to make clear I am neither endorsing nor opposing the mast plans but merely seeking to make sure residents of the village are aware and can find the relevant information.

The Parish Council has received the following from the Derbyshire Association of Local Councils.

As you may be aware from local news there is a proposal to close Newholme Hospital, Bakewell as part of changes to the care system.

We have been asked by a member Council to forward the link to the consultation to parish councils/meetings in the Bakewell area in order that they could have an opportunity to comment.

Derbyshire Dales District Council has responded to the views of local people on proposed “Horse Orders” that could become law in public spaces across the Derbyshire Dales from April. The District Council’s Environment Committee are considering  plans to adopt exclusion orders and a horse-on-lead reign policy in certain areas – and give council workers powers to issue fixed penalty notices to riders who fail to remove horse mess left by their animals in public places. The proposed orders seek to balance the needs of responsible riders against the interests of those affected by large piles of horse droppings, particularly toddlers.  (more…)
