PLASTIC BAG PROBLEM:
Lee Cooke, Foreman at Wrackleford Farms thanks the kind dog walkers who are nice enough to pick up after their dogs
on the footpaths
and adds that too many still don't. He goes on to say that there are a number of dog walkers leaving bags and contents on the side of the farm tracks and suggests that this is probably worse than not picking up after the dog in the first place as the plastic bag then becomes litter. Everyone at Wrackleford Farms is trying to make the footpaths and farm tracks a nicer place to work and walk.
