Dogs molesting sheep

There have been several reports of loose dogs in Little Hadham and dogs worrying livestock, with varied descriptions of the dogs reported.

The local police and police Rural Operation Support Team attended a farmland location in Little Hadham today where 2 dogs were stopped from attacking a young lamb.

One of the dogs has been detained and the second dog unfortunately ran off. Enquiries with the owner (who is not a local keeper) are being progressed by the police ROST team and residents are being asked to remain vigilant for a second golden retriever dog, possibly aged around 3-4 years old and report all stray or loose dogs to police. (Left in the picture)

The playground was given to the parish many years ago though many residents don’t know it exists. The Council plans to change the site into an area for all residents to enjoy and they want to hear what people think.

There is a questionnaire available at the Nag’s Head and the Village Hall or online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/KYK2GW3

Forms should be completed by 10th April and hard copies returned to the Nag’s Head or the Village Hall.

A workshop will be held at the Village Hall on 24 April from 10am. This will be led by Wyld Edges, a local company who have been helping with potential designs.

A proposal shall be submitted to the Parish Council in June
