VISITING supporters of football teams playing at Kings Field in Wargrave have been urged not to walk their dogs on the village allotments.
The warning from the parish council comes after complaints from plot holders at the allotments, off recreation Road.
Councillor Marion Pope said: “Fortunately, our football teams know they can’t bring dogs up for matches but allotment holders recently found a lady from a visiting team out on the allotments throwing a ball and letting her dog do things everywhere.
“We need to make sure that any visiting team knows it is a dog–free area because it’s not fair on the allotment holders.” Councillors agreed to install a dog waste bin at Mill Green, off Station Road. The bin will cost £125 to install as well as a £235 annual fee for it to be emptied regularly throughout the year.
Parish clerk Stephen Hedges said: “For some reason that area has got very busy with dog walkers and the normal bin is overflowing.”
Meanwhile, a new shed at the allotments is due to open. It has been fitted with lockers which will be available for rent by allotment users. Small lockers will cost £50 per year and larger ones £65.
Mr Hedges said: “Each locker will have a padlock with a key and there will be a general lock on the outside of the shed. There will be one larger locker for the Wargrave Allotments Society and there’s no charge for that.”
