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

There are currently 23 bins in the parish which are either dedicated dog bins or multi-purpose bins which should be used for disposing of bagged dog poo and litter, please use them. The dog bin map of Braughing is available here >>>

The increase in dog fouling in Braughing has reached epidemic proportions.  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.



Helping to make Braughing a more pleasant place for residents and visitors, there will be a tidy-up on every second Sunday of the month meeting a Grove Barn, Green End at 10.30am. Litter-pickers, high-vis jackets, gloves and bin bags will be provided and children are welcome as well as adults (we have smaller versions of gloves etc.).

If you live in one of the hamlets and would like to help with litter collection, but are not able to meet at Braughing, please contact Cllr Ruth Fleetwood here >>> to arrange the collection of equipment at a convenient time for you.

Together, we can make our community a more pleasant and tidy environment. 

Please respect our village environment and enjoy your visit.

It is evidenced that some visitors to our village, vehicles passing through and cyclists, do not respect our environment. Some vehicle drivers litter our paths and hedgerows, some cyclists discard punctured inner tubes - on the spot fine of £150.  The residents of Braughing are particularly insistent that visitors and passers by respect the place where we live and will photograph and report offenders.
