Enjoy summer. Take Care. All regards
Dog walkers are welcome in Birchanger Wood BUT, Please Clean up after your pet.......
Dog mess is not only really horrible and smelly. It can cause serious infections. Please carry dog 'poo' bags with you and clear up. We do not have dog bins in Birchanger Wood owing both to the cost, and impracticality of collection, but, there are RED Poo-Bins on the public footpath main approach from Heath Row, and close to the Play area at Northholt Avenue. Please take your dog-poo away with you and put it in one of these bins, or your own rubbish bin. Most dog walkers are only a few minutes from home.
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE FILLED DOGGY POO BAGS ON THE GROUND;
OR THROW THEM INTO BUSHES; OR HANG THEM IN TREES.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A 'POO-FAIRY' WHO ARRIVES AT NIGHTFALL TO TAKE THEM AWAY.
Please leave Birchanger Wood clear of doggy 'do-dah' Thank you.
Hello and it's August Already! Summer, so here's just a little poem:
Let's go down to The Wood today.
Go on, swing along, run or play,
Walk in the trees without a care,
Wander in our green lung of fresh air .
The Family, the dog, all ages too.
Healthy for All, for Us and for You.
