Regardless of the anti-social nature of the issue, leaving dog mess on pavements and paths around Shrewton is a continuing problem.

Worse is the potential health risks when dog mess is left on the playing fields at the rec where people of all ages engage in sports. To help with this, Shrewton Parish Council has purchased a number of waste bins and now pays for them to be regularly emptied. Wiltshire Council will not help either supply or empty new bins – it is up to our community! The hope is that more people will bag the waste and drop it in the bins. Two are in place, more are to be added. Hopefully, they will be well used!
