Not according to their video anyway!
We congratulate Charnwood Borough Council on producing this little gem of an instructional video. I don't know how I failed to find it earlier!
I like the "don't muck around" strap line. It has a certain ring to it.
I do, however, feel a little sorry for the lady in the video. If she was looking to break into acting, she has seriously damaged her career!

A dispute arose, the police were involved and Adam Semmens Pearce, 31, of West Cliff, Porthtowan, pleaded guilty at Truro Magistrates' Court to using threatening behaviour towards Daniel O'Brien between April 5 and 8 at Porthtowan.
Alison May, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said there had been difficulties over the cleaning of the mess from a dog belonging to Pearce's girlfriend, who also lived in the same block of flats. Mr O'Brien had sent her a note but had no response and raised the problem with the letting agent.
Mr Pearce then showed Mr O'Brien a letter from the agent saying the dog might have to be removed from the premises. Later he threatened to enter Mr O'Brien's flat and "tear him to pieces".
And all this for the sake of not cleaning up!
I find myself asking what the problem is in an otherwise quiet area of North Cornwall. Why is it providing the blog with such a rich source of material? I don't know but I continue to fear that Cornwall will sink under the weight (of complaints!).
If you are connected with Cornwall and have any views or information, please feel free to comment and let us know, we are here to advise and help!

The campaign has not been without controversy. The image of a child consuming faeces is shocking and enough to get the message across to any rational person.

I can understand why! The following deposit lies in the hedge just down the lane:
Further up the lane, we see some "benign substance":
Indeed, the village is awash! Many say that St Agnes is an old style village, caught in a time warp. As if to prove this, on the approach path to the Beacon, there was some white dog poo from the seventies!
Once again, Cornwall has it all!

|Des Mennear and Colin Brown with the template they are using to paint on pavements in Tregony, as part of their anti dog fouling campaign.|
Frankly, there is nothing like a spray painted sign to put off a desperate dog! Also, the sight of a sprayed message would strike fear into the hardest heart.

|Graham Shepherd with his wife Lisbeth in their garden with some of the rubbish which has been thrown over their fence|
The lady above received a fine for dropping a cigarette end. While this is an anti-social thing to do, she and her husband ask valid questions regarding the general approach of the council to litter.
My only surprise is that she provided her details. If she had walked away, XFor staff could have done nothing! As Graham puts it, litter regularly gets thrown over his fence into his garden and flytipping is also rife near his home in May Avenue, St Mary Cray. Mr Shepherd, 53, said: “Should I put a bill in to Bromley Council for picking up their mess?" I need not repeat the full arguments put forward as they can be read here.
Suffice it to say that XFor appears to have gone bust! This is no surprise. Do we really want our local authorities to employ enforcement firms, which can only survive if they hammer people with tickets? I would really like to know how many aggressive people with bull terriers received tickets for dog fouling as opposed to passive ladies, who dropped a cigarette end in the town centre?
I will email Cllr Colin Smith to see if he can advise us. Until then, will Bromley Council rethink its strategy? I wonder!
