At the request of residents, Little Paxton Parish Council has agreed to review the number of dog waste bins in the village and would like to ask residents where they think new bins could be located.
Cllr John Longbottom said. 'Dog mess left on pavements, footpaths and on the playing field is not acceptable. The majority of dog owners are responsible however there are some who do not clean up after their pet.'
If you think a particular area of the village would benefit from an additional dog waste bin, please let us know by contacting the Clerk Tel 01480 470193, email firstname.lastname@example.org. or send a message on the Councils social media page.

In 2012, Little Paxton Parish Council installed an old style village hand water pump at Little Paxton Lawn Cemetery to enable visiting relatives to water flowers on their 'loved ones' memorials.
The water pump has been much admired and remarked upon by the visitors to the cemetery.
Yesterday the water pump was reported stolen and the base has been smashed.
It is thought the vandalism occurred between 11 am Wednesday 11th February and 2pm on Thursday 12th February.
Parish Clerk Jenny Gellatly said, 'This is thoughtless, mindless vandalism and is unacceptable. To steal something from a cemetery is beyond believe.'
If anyone has any information, please contact the Police Tel 101 quoting reference number CF0058720215.
As part of the 2012 Jubilee Celebrations, Little Paxton Parish Council, along with the help of children from Little Paxton School, planted an oak tree on the grass verge on Gordon Road (near the High Street). A bronze plaque was erected beside the tree to record the occasion.

The Council invites and welcomes resident's comments on this project.

Please forward all comments on the project to the Parish Clerk, 11 Hayling Avenue, Little Paxton PE19 6HG or email email@example.com by the 6th March.
