But volunteers shocked by the number of dog poo bags found strewn on pathways and in hedges

VOLUNTEERS have been busy giving Fremington Quay and Instow sand dunes an early spring clean.

A small group of a dozen helpers collected around four bin bags full of rubbish and litter that had built up on the dunes, foreshore and pathways during the winter.

Local district and county councillor, Rodney Cann, who was among those who helped, said volunteers were happy to do their bit to help keep the area clean and tidy.

“We are very proud of Fremington Quay and it is a very popular destination for many thousands of visitors and local residents,” he said.

“But we were shocked to find so many plastic bags of dog poo strewn about the pathways and I would urge dog walkers to clean up after their animals.

“Quite frankly I find it inexcusable that people go to the effort of bagging up their animals’ waste but do not then dispose of it correctly.”
