CHRISTMAS TREES ARRIVE!!

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 17:01 by Phillip Woodward

Pilsley's 2017 Christmas Trees have arrived and have been erected on the Village Green opposite St. Mary's Church and on Parkhouse Green, Lower Pilsley. They just need dressing!!

Lights will be installed on them in a week or so's time and residents, groups, schools and other organisations are invited to put up their own decorations. We would ask that these are tasteful, in the spirit of Christmas and non discriminatory. They can include personal messages and dedications. More »

Last year this was a very successful feature, with many contributions from the community on both trees. » Less

YOUR DOG + THEIR POO = YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:52 by Phillip Woodward

The Parish Council are receiving complaints again about thoughtless or irresponsible dog owners who still don't pick up after their pet. A specific complaint has been received about dog mess left on the footpaths between Forest Drive along Bridge Street and Church Street. As residents will know this is a main route for children attending Pilsley Primary School, and as every parent will know the chances of them treading in it are very high indeed. Apart from the health risks associated with dog poo this is not a nice thought for the school, if it happens on the way in. More »

The subject of dog mess on our footpaths occupies more time than any other issue with the Parish Council. Whilst we do not have a responsibility to enforce prosecutions against dog owners we do take our civic responsibilities seriously: so seriously in fact that we:

Provide 21 dog waste bins around the village near to well-used dog walking routes. A list of the locations of these is available from the Parish Clerk. There are also another three within the Parish provided by the County Council on the 5 Pits Trail.

Have installed 3 dog waste bag dispensers on our three recreation grounds at Morton Road, Sampson's Field and at the Miners Welfare Sports Ground.

Spend over £4500 per year, which could be spent on other essential services, to have the waste bins emptied weekly.

North East Derbyshire District Council are responsible for prosecuting anyone failing to pick up mess left by any dog under their control. The Parish Council are committed to supporting the Dog Wardens in this and will supply CCTV evidence of any transgression caught on our system. We encourage residents to help us by reporting any such incident that they witness, with supporting photographic evidence and car registrations if necessary.

THERE ARE TWO SIMPLE THINGS YOU CAN DO AS A DOG OWNER – TAKE POO BAGS OUT WITH YOU EVERY TIME YOU WALK YOUR DOG AND PICK UP AFTERWARDS. IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT!

PLEASE HELP US KEEP THE OUR VILLAGE CLEAN AND A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR CHILDREN. » Less
