ANTI-dog fouling signs in Holy Trinity Churchyard have created a right old stink among dog owners who have criticised them for being unfair and even unchristian in their wording.
The new signs read: “The Churchyard is consecrated ground. Please treat it with respect and do not exercise your dog within this precinct” and have been approved by Stratford Town Council which maintains the land.
A couple of concerned dog owners contacted the Herald this week to complain about the signs that have appeared recently.
One said: “I was surprised to see the new signs at the entrances to Holy Trinity Church, apart from the pomposity of the language used, the sign implies that dogs are running all over the graves. I walk my dog (on his lead) through the churchyard several times a day and treat it with the respect it deserves.”
