The Community Council have had numerous complaints that children have come into contact with dog excrement when playing in Parc Cae’r Afallen.

In spite of notices requesting dog owners to pick up  droppings left by by their animals, some residents have flagrantly ignored the request.  

The Council have therefore, with regret, decided to ban dogs from the field.
