It has been brought to my attention that The Fairhaven Estate have recently put new signage up requesting that dogs are kept on their leads when walking on certain footpaths within the Village. These signs have since been removed by an unknown person/persons.
I have been informed via The Fairhaven Estate, that they have passed this matter to the Police to deal with.
Whilst we do live within a rural community I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the majority of the land in and around Kirtling is owned by The Fairhaven Estate and they are well within their legal right to put any signage up that they feel necessary. Some of their land is shooting land and this requires dogs to be kept under control at all times whilst Game are being reared and during the shooting season.
If anyone does see anything untoward please contact either myself or the Police.
Please do pass this information on to those who do not have access to the internet.
Kirtling and Upend Parish Clerk
