    Wow what a load of changes sice I was last here

    No changes about the NFH though, they are still being really nasty and I can't remember where I posted my last topic (about dogs mess being thrown into our local stream)

    Well they still do it and I have screamed & shouted to my housing officer, and at the Enviromental health but no one is interested I don't know where to turn next??

    Does anyone have any ideas I could try

      Great changes to the board Holly (good to see you again)

      My Housing officer just told me to phone the enviromental health department, which I did but the EH department told me that because they throw the mess late at night, it will be difficlut to prove and that they don't like *whistle blowers*

      Well you can imagine how angry I am, I am not being nasty I just want to have good health, not to mention all the kids that will be effected in the long run

      I don't know Holly, I feel like I am banging my head against a brick wall, and that the housing & EH will never do anthing about this

      Oooo sorry I got a bit carried away for a minute there :sad: I bet you wish you never asked now eh!! :lol:

        I'm gobsmacked!!!! So we're all supposed to keep quiet about things that can affect peoples' health just so the EH can have a quiet time and be paid for nothing!!

        Maybe you should blow the whistle on them, Dawnie

          You need to provide photographic evidence of the dirty deed.

          does he/she pick up the mess the dog left behind.

          where do they put it.

          supply a name and address and photo and send it off to your council.

          sit back and wait.

          We HAD the same problem here.

            mrunhappy, to cut a long story short, my NFH scoops up the mess puts it in a plastic carrier bag, then throws it over the back fence (we have a stream running along the back of our gardens, for the wildlife)

            As they throw the mess over at 1-2am in the morning, it is hard to capture them on camera

            I have just sent emails to all departments of the Enviromental office, I have stated that if they won't do anything, then I will become a whistle blower and go to the press about them :angry:

            I will let you know if I get a reply, they shouldn't have made me soooo I can't believe they called me a whistle blower :angry: I am just a concerned citizen.

              The filthy BEEPS!!

              Just a thought, but what about the National Rivers Authority in England (or whatever they call themselves nowadays) or SEPA in Scotland after all, these people are polluting a water course?

                Councils dont care a hoot, i was taking my dog down this dirt tract going to the Leeds-Liverpool canal for a long walk, and what did i see but a tipper lorry dumping tyres, and a load had already been dumped, so i rung our council up yes siree Metropolital Borough of Wigan(the motto is the caring borough) spoke to the EH, not our concern they said, not a health hazard so here is another phone no to ring, well you know the rest, i never got anybody really interested. This country is finished when even councils are so apathetic.
