We have been asked by local farmers for walkers to follow a few simple
rules whilst out and about during the current covid 19 emergency.
Most importantly please follow basic self distancing rules and keep
your dogs on a lead. This is especially important if you are walking on a
path or field that is not a designated footpath. Dog poo can harm
livestock and can make it impossible to safely harvest a field for
animal feed. It is a real problem at the moment. Please try and keep
to the designated footpaths but if you are walking on a path that is
not a designated footpath (including the farm track from Frogs Island to
the Mackney/Moreton path) please respect any instructions a farmer
gives you. Finally, during this time please stick to the path itself and don't walk off into the fields.
Our local farms are operating a closed system at the moment to protect
their workers and ensure the crop is safely brought in. Please help
