Members from 3 villages met at the Old Inn on 14th December 2018 for lunch.

Sadly, this topic has to be raised again as a few irresponsible dog owners or walkers are not picking-up after their pets. Not only is it an unpleasant sight to see (and smell), it is disgusting to step into or get onto the wheels of a buggy, bicycle etc. Wrapping dog poo in plastic and decorating bushes and trees with it, as appears along the Camel Trail, is just as revolting with the added problem of it taking longer to degrade. Dog poo can carry the eggs of Toxocara which, if inadvertently swallowed by humans, can lead to serious illness including blindness.
It is just as important to clear up after your dog when on Bodmin Moor as dog poo can also carry the eggs of both Neospora, which can cause the abortion of calves in cattle, and also Sarcocystis, which can cause limb weakness or paralysis in sheep.
There are quite a few litter/dog bins around St Breward – to see the list of where they can be found, please click here – and all the bins are multi-use.
There is now an on-line form whereby a member of the public – not only a specified person such as a dog warden – can report a dog fouling incident. To access this form, please click here. Failure to clean up after your dog has fouled will result in a fixed penalty of £100 being issued. If you are prosecuted and found guilty, you would face a maximum fine of £1000.
Remember, there is no such thing as the Dog Poo Fairy! Please keep St Breward as the lovely place it should be.
