Don’t let your dogs foul in my churchyard warns St Helens vicar

First published in News

A VICAR is complaining about people who allow their dogs to foul in his churchyard.

Rev Alan Overend of St Aidan’s Church in Billinge writes in his parish magazine: “There has been an increase in dog fouling around the church.

“The church grounds are consecrated land and as such, should be treated with respect.

“Please will all dog owners act responsibly and not allow their animals to foul this area.”
