Dog Poo in Leabank Square
We all heard about the little girl who contracted Toxocariasis earlier this year. She picked it up while playing on the Leabank Square Green from falling into some dog poo and rubbing her eye while crying.
This is a very serious disease - and as such - the dog poo situation in Leabank Square should be treated very seriously!
We all love our pets - and look after them with all the love & care they deserve. But when they poo in the common areas of Leabank Square - please clean up after them.
The family in question moved out very soon after this incident - but as a result of the Management Company having to sort out the insurance - we have all been asked to keep a look out for any dogs that foul in Leabank Square.
We know that none of the residents of Leabank Square would do this to little children who love playing in Leabank Square - but please be on the look-out for any visitors with dogs who foul our lovely square. You are absolutely entitled to take a picture of the offending dog owners. Please could you email the pics (with any supporting information) to http://www.pmms.org.uk/ (our square's management company) - and they will start the prosecution.
They have assured us that we can do this anonymously - and that they will act immediately on this information.
Come on Leabank Square - do this before another child gets very seriously ill!!
