What is it about all these ‘offerings’ being made to the “Dog Poo Fairy?”
I cycle through Sydney Gardens on a regular basis. Last week there was a bagged bundle just inside the Sydney Road entrance. It disappeared in time but there was another one in its place today.
It’s not as though the park doesn’t contain doggie poo bins – because it does and most dog owners use it.
I never blame a dog for misdemeanours. After all, it’s the owner who has to take responsibility.
It’s a shame some parts of Sydney Gardens have just become a playground for dogs off their leads. Even the poor old spring daffodils have been taking a battering from our four-legged friends running wild.
Here’s hoping this historic green lung gets its HLF money and its supporters are able to transform it into a revitalised playground with allocated space for all.
Sydney Gardens gives you access to the towpath of the Kennet and Avon Canal. Turn left towards open countryside and you are in for a real treat.
Shame the Canal and River Trust has no real teeth to deal with some of those actually floating on the canal.
Not for me to say how you live your lives but when your rubbish despoils and destroys the canal verge – where others living in tents have also lit fires – it’s time to move on.
Never mind the dog poo fairy, here’s a bag of towpath grit being used as a general rubbish dump!
l feel for the responsible users of this amazing heritage and for the volunteers who do all they can to maintain it.
