Dogged by mess!

Are irresponsible dog owners not picking up after their pets in Ilfracombe?

I am writing as a visitor to Ilfracombe. My son and partner have just moved here and my husband and I had great pleasure in visiting them at home and enjoying all that Ilfracombe has to offer.

Wonderful walks, small beaches, breathtaking views and local shops and cafes with a warm welcome within (special mention to Dolly’s and The Periwinkle Wool Shop, also Cotton Trees children’s clothes shop).

However, what a great shame walking around the High Street and side roads – the big problem of dog mess!

It seems the same dog and owner in the same place at the same time of day are fouling the pavements and instead of looking at the view I have to look down and tread carefully.

Come on, all you locals – be proud of your town. Continue to welcome tourists and regular visitors (which we hope to be).
