There have been a number of incidences of livestock worrying around Cromhall with irresponsible dog owners allowing their dogs to run free and chase cows and sheep.
The parish council has been advised of sheep worrying at Wickes Hill and recently a dog chasing cows led to the cows aborting and the loss of the cows.
Cromhall parish has several working farms and at this time of year, farmers have livestock including pregnant animals in the fields.
Reported problems include:
This is a lovely area in which to live and enjoy the countryside but please be aware it is also a working environment. Livestock worrying is a serious offence. It can lead to prosecutions and farmers do have the right to shoot dogs that are worrying or attacking livestock.
Please be responsible; keep to footpaths, ensure dogs are kept on leads especially around livestock and dispose of dog pooh in litter bins.

The Parish Council meets on the second Wednesday of each month, except in December, in the Village Hall at 7.30pm.
Anyone is welcome to attend meetings, but may only speak when invited to do so.
Anyone can propose items for the agenda by informing the clerk of that proposal at least eight days before the meeting so that due notice can be given.
This Charity was set up in 1973 with the objective being to relieve, either generally or individually, persons resident in the Parish of Cromhall who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress.
The charity owns land at Heathend, which gives it its income through annual rents, and is administered by four trustees all resident within Cromhall. The trustees are appointed by the Parish Council every four years.
The trustees can help (and would welcome applications from) anyone genuinely in need of assistance and residents can apply for this help directly or through a third party, at any time through the year.
These days “those in need” are not so easy to identify, so for many years now, the trustees have distributed the income at Christmas time, in the form of a gift voucher to be used in the village shop. (Years ago, coal, electricity stamps and other gifts were distributed.)
Recipients of the gift are Cromhall residents over the age of retirement and who have lived in the village for five years or more. Where a couple live together, only one gift is given per household.
The trustees consider who should receive the gift at its autumn meeting, but it is very difficult to know who is eligible each year. If you have never received the gift in the past and feel you should, please make the trustees aware of this as soon as possible.
Lastly, the trustees are always mindful of their original purpose, and so if there is anyone in the parish, of any age, in real need or hardship please do approach the charity for help. Any such request will be considered sympathetically and in confidence by the trustees.
If you would like further information please contact any of the trustees or Secreatary Sue Wray on or 294387, or leave a note for Sue in Cromhall Village Shop.
