A NEW CHALLENGE
Some years ago it was rarely possible to walk across the common without getting some dog poo on your shoes. One of the PCEG's greatest unsung achievements was persuading Greenwich Council to bring in the Dog Control Orders. In fact we wrote the first draft of those orders in order to speed up the process. The results were remarkable. Unfortunately we seem to be slipping backwards now. Those of us that remember "dog poo alley" past the tennis courts will know that things are still a lot better than they were. If you dare, just lift the lid on any dog poo bin and consider that the entire contents would, not so long ago, have been lying in wait for your children's shoes.
But now it is time for some enforcement in some easily identifiable areas. Apparently - according to those who live there - it would be a good idea to start with the Glyndon estate.
It has certainly become challenging again, when walking any distance across Plumstead Common, to avoid ramming a foul-smelling turd into one's treads.
We are trying to flag up the problem!
