Our thanks to Berkhamsted Citizens Association for this news item.

Alert, all dog owners and walkers!

A Dacorum-wide restriction we reported on last year came into force in July and applies to all play areas, fenced and unfenced, in the Borough. It has the benevolent intention to restrict all dog access to play areas but, perhaps unintentionally, means dogs cannot be walked, even on a lead, on the path adjacent to the unfenced play area on the Moor, and on Canal Fields close to the skateboard park.

Signage alerting people to the new law will be put up. Information leaflets will be made available by DBC and Berkhamsted Citizens Assocation will circulate them to those on their email list. If you have a dog, please keep them informed!
