"SAVING LIVES IN BRAUGHING"

Braughing Parish Council has installed two automated defibrillators in the village:-

Access to an automated defibrillator can make a significant difference to the outcome for that person and can and do save lives.


Bonfires

There have been a few complaints in the village about anti-social lighting of bonfiresThe Environmental Protection Act 1990 includes smoke as a potential source of nuisance. Key to this is whether it causes a 'statutory nuisance'; if it does the Environmental Team at East Herts Council can take action with the aim of stopping or reducing the nuisance.

In summary, for the smoke to count as a statutory nuisance it must do one of the following:

  • unreasonably and substantially interfere with the use or enjoyment of a home or other premises or
  • injure health or be likely to injure health.

If it's not a statutory nuisance East Herts Council, of course, can provide advice. There's more advice on the council's website here >>>. East Herts Council would need to investigate the matter to determine the level of nuisance. Contact Environmental Health on 01279 655261 to discuss the issue in more detail.

Report Dog Fouling to our local council - do you want a picture of YOU, and your dogs poo, featured here?

The increase in dog fouling in Braughing has reached epidemic proportions.  What is it about dog owners, who do not clean up their dog's mess?  Don't they understand that it's filthy, disgusting and a health hazard. They have a social and community responsibility to clean up after their dogs.  When challenged by a resident who saw a dog poo on the playing fields, the owner told her to F**k off as she paid her council tax and was not going to clean up after her dog.

So this is what we are going to do.

  • If you see a fouling incident please photograph it on your mobile - the dog pooing and a picture of the owner
  • Report it to the 'FixMyStreet' website and upload the photo, which links to East Herts District Council
  • FixMyStreet is found here >>>

We hope that by taking this action as a community we can put an end to this disgusting, foul practice which is a health hazard - particularly to our children.  Please support this cause which has the full backing of Braughing Parish Council.
