Dog Mess – what’s the Scoop?!

15

Dear users.
There have been an unusually high amount of comments on our website recently all about Dog Mess.

To let you know, I will take this issue to the Co Group meeting and ask them if they wish to put it on the agenda for the next meeting on the 12th of November.

If you want to come up with any possible solutions to the issue please add these to the Commonplace Map here.

We realise there is a problem right across Lewisham, but to make change we need some ideas of how we can tackle this – so get your thinking caps on. If you want to become a member of the suggested ‘dog mess police’ then volunteer yourself for some rather gross, but important action.

Here is what ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ have to say:
“Dog mess is an emotive issue and one of the most unacceptable and offensive type of litter on our streets. Our research shows dog fouling is the issue the public are most concerned about.

Whether it’s our research-led campaigns, our innovations, our legal advice, or our work with land managers and dog charities we are working hard to tackle the issue.

And we are making a difference. By changing behaviours and creating solutions we’ve helped reduce dog-fouling by up to 77%, helping people feel proud of where they live.

If you want to get a project off the ground, then give them a call and see if they have any ideas for Catford South

Thank you

    Dear Sirs.
    What do I have to do to get you to listen to me? I bet it’s because I’m black. If I were white it would be taken seriously. Thanks a bunch.
    I have not said that before.

    Dear Sirs.
    Can you PLEASE tell me what you are doing about dogdirt in Catford and Lewisham? Surely this reasonable enquiry will not be rejected like all my previous queries and comments?
    With best wishes, Jermaine Campbell.

    Dear Sirs. I give up. No wonder Catford and Lewisham has such a stinking reputation for dog muck.

  7. Jermaine Campbell on

    Dear Sirs, This is ridiculous! What am I supposed to say? Nice doggie. Do your mess boy.

    Dear Residents.
    On the question of dog-fouling there is only one solution. Dogs have to be caught in the act. This can be done by the Police. Yours Jermaine Campbell.

    Dear Catford and Lewisham residents.
    I’m surprised that nobody has answered this correspondence. Perhaps people like dog fouling? I’ve given the matter a lot of thought and am convinced that Dog Muck Police and lots of them is the only answer. Dogs have got to be caught in the act. That’s the solution.

      Dear Residents,
      I’m surprised that nobody has answered this correspondence. I have given this matter a lot of thought and am convinced that there is only one realistic solution to the problem of dog-fouling. Dog-muck Police and lots of them. Dogs have to be caught in the act. There is no other answer. Sincerely, Jermaine.

    Can you please put face smacking in Lewisham area on the next agenda. I remember the craze called happy slapping started in Lewisham some years ago and it wasn’t nice I’m an elderly lady and I don’t want someone’s palms on my cheeks. I’ve been face smacked twice lately. Lewishamites don’t seem to know what to do next to hurt and annoy.

    Well said Eunice dear. Couldn’t agree morel who’s for nose rubbing? People who let their dogs mess are nincumpoops.

    From Eunice Mogrum
    Yes I have noticed a large number of comments about DOGSMUCK lately. All over the place Catfordians seem to be talking about it. Is seems to fascinate them. As I said to my neighbour the other day I would rub the dog owners noses in the dogs mess. What else can you do. I thought of recruiting dog muck officers but it would cost a lot money to employ them. Unless you put a bit on the council tax to pay for it. That is worth thinking about. Nose rubbing is the cheapest way. But then who is going to do it? Not your little old lady trying to upend a big brute of a Catfordite. It’s a difficult one. What do you fellow Catfordites think?

      I’m not serprised that dogdirt is causing a stink in Catford. What we want are sone bright ideas how we can end the scourge of dogmess in Catford. Someone said the other day that we should all put our foot down but we would get it on our shoes and we don’t want that do we? I love the logo of a man putting his foot down on a dollop. But what about some sensible ideas. Could we have hoses washing the dog muck away. Come on you Catfordites. Thinking caps on.
