BREAKING NEWS: Community dog-mess clean-up cancelled

A COMMUNITY clean-up event planned for the Washyke Lane recreation ground in Hucknall on Wednesday (April 4) has been cancelled due to the weather.

The town was hit by snow and rain overnight and the event, planned by Ashfield District Council, has had to be called off at the last minute.

It was scheduled in a bid to tackle the scourge of dog mess on the popular open space and tied in with a Dispatch-backed campaign to crack down on irresponsible owners who don’t clean up after their pets.

It is hoped the event can be rearranged for a later date.
