Dog owners are leaving waste bags on Highdown Hill

The sign, located near Highdown Gardens states “Please do not leave dog poo bags here to spoil Highdown Hill for other users. There are dedicated bins at the car park.”

Jackie Ghent, 51, of The Quadrant in Goring, found the bags while walking her two dogs at the weekend.

She said: “I carry my bags after my dogs have done their waste, so I don’t know what was going on, I don’t know if it was people misreading the sign.

The sign states not to leave waste bags on the hill.

“There should be a bin if it is confusing to people. I know the bags have since been removed, but it will probably be like that again this weekend. I just want to make people aware that the sign is there so bags stop getting left.”
