Reminder for all Equestrians

Published: 30 January 2020

A number of equestrians have been observed riding along the pavements in the village, notably in Lyons Road. Equestrians might like to re-visit the Highway Code: Rules about animals: Rule number 40 which states:

You MUST NOT take a horse on to a footpath, pavement or cycle track. Use a bridleway where possible. Laws HA 1835 sect 72 & R(S)A sect 129(5).

Unfortunately, piles of horse excrement are building up on pavements leading to the centre of the village, which is unpleasant and potentially dangerous for pedestrians, especially after dark.
