Day of Action Against Dog Fouling in Llanwrtyd Wells
Our thanks to PCSO Trudy Davies, for joining us on our Day of Action. We visited all the spots in Town that are having trouble with owners allowing their dogs to foul the pavements and not clearing up after them.
We met quite a few people on our walk round town.
The areas of most concern were:
Dolwen Fields, where dogs are being taken onto the park. The whole of Dolwen Fields is a designated 'dog exclusion area'. Owners will be fined for walking their dogs on any part of the field.
Riverside Walk, Victoria Road, Dol Y Coed Road, Town Square, Station Road, Tai Cae Mawr and the walkway between Station Road and Tai Cae Mawr.
Llanwrtyd Wells Town Council would like to say a big thank you to all residents that are picking up after their dogs, you are doing us proud.
To those that do not, beware, you are being watched.

Town Council Working Together with the Police and the Community
During Autumn 2019 the Diamond Jubilee Pavilion in Dolwen Field was vandalised. The young people involved owned up to their mistake and offered to make amends.
Following liaison with the Community Police team the Town Council and the parents agreed that Youth Restorative Justice would be the appropriate course of action.
PC Wayne Ballard spoke to the young people in the presence of parents and ensured that the agreed amount of compensation was paid to the Town Council.
The repairs to the Pavilion were undertaken by a local business.
A good example of us all working together to protect Llanwrtyd Wells.
Town Council says thank you to the Llanwrtyd Fire & Rescue

The station and its crew were presented with an Outstanding Achievement in the Line of Duty certificate at a civic reception held by Llanwrtyd Wells Town Council.
Mayor of Llanwrtyd Wells Cllr Lynda Pace-Avery delivered a heartfelt tribute to the fire crew and Cllr Van-Rees applauded the crew for their co-responder work.
The Mayor said: "In the last few years the crew have faced difficult times and met them with professionalism, heroism and dignity.
