Public Concern

Once again we have been approached by members of the public concerned about the state of paths used jointly both by horses and pedestrians. The concern is regarding the horse droppings which are left on the paths. The particular path this time being brought to our attention is the one between Albury Derive and Wellbank View behind the community school in Norden.
Please can we ask anyone, who's horse defecates when on these sort of cut throughs, if they could consider returning as soon as it is practicable to push the droppings into the side. This way we can help pedestrians not to be inconvenienced, demonstrate to them that we are considerate, and both parties can  continue to enjoy the rural space that we live in. We appreciate that this particular cut through is a wide one and if horses could ride on the road part that would leave the footpaths on either side free of horse manure for the pedestrians.
If you know of anyone who is not a member but rides in this area please pass on the message. Every little bit helps.
The poo in question has now been brushed to the side
