Advance Notice- Dog Waste Bags.

Advance Notice- Dog Waste Bags.

Unfortunately, once our last box of stock has been used up, we will be unable to supply free dog bags from the Parish Office and Glen Hills Library. This is due to cuts in the budget at Blaby District Council.

We thank you for continuing to pick up after your dog and urge you to report someone who is witnessed failing to do so. This can be done by contacting Blaby District Council.
