Clearing the Verges and River
I have read the to and fro over the verges etc. John Elliot informed me that it's not Cow Parsley but Water Hemlock which is poisonous to animals if they eat some.
He told me because he knows that I regularly run the dog in the stream to clean/cool him off. He referred to a case that has been in the Echo recently where a dog died in these circumstances.
The waste has been left there for too long now and should be collected before we have another tragedy or it starts to rot and smell.
I noticed the Environment Agency having a good hard look at it this morning, they have the power to prosecute for non-removal.
I am writing thus because I have seen, in my profession, what can happen when usually placid people go on Facebook and get out of control saying things they normally wouldn't.
